What to Know

A Mid-American battle is on tap between the Kent State Golden Flashes and the Ohio Bobcats at 6:30 p.m. ET Friday at Convocation Center. The teams split their matchups last year, with Kent State winning the first 89-79 and Ohio taking the second 85-63.

The Ball State Cardinals typically have all the answers at home, but on Tuesday the Golden Flashes proved too difficult a challenge. Kent State escaped with a win by the margin of a single free throw, 66-65. Their guard Sincere Carry did his thing and had 26 points and six assists along with seven boards.

Meanwhile, Ohio didn’t have too much breathing room in their game with the Akron Zips on Tuesday, but they still walked away with a 69-63 win. Guard Mark Sears was the offensive standout of the matchup for Ohio, picking up 24 points and five assists in addition to eight rebounds.

The Golden Flashes are expected to lose this next one by 7. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn’t have high expectations for them since the team is 0-2 ATS when expected to lose.

Kent State suffered a grim 85-63 defeat to the Bobcats when the two teams previously met in March of last year. The loss knocked Kent State out of the playoffs, so expect them to come at Ohio with a vengeful fire.
