League-leading Ohio comes to town

The Flashes finally get off the road this week, but it doesn’t get any easier.

Kent State hosts Ohio at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the MACC. That’s Ohio, as in defending MAC champs, only undefeated team in MAC play and ninth-ranked Mid Major team in the country.

The Bobcats are 13-3, 5-0 in conference play and have the 33rd highest RPI in the nation. That’s the highest ranking of anyone on the KSU schedule, including Minnesota, Wright State and Youngstown State.

Ohio has a lot of weapons, but it starts with returning all-MAC guard Kiyanna Black, who scored 39 points Saturday in OU’s 86-84 overtime victory over Central Michigan. Black averages 18.2 points a game, third in the conference, and leads the league in three-point shots attempted (10. per game) and three-points baskets (3.6).

As a team, OU ranks eight in the country in three-point shots attempted (30.19.0) per game) and ninth in three-point shots made (9.0).

The Bobcats also lead the MAC in scoring making, field goal defense and blocked shots.

Kent State is 3-12 on the season and is 0-5 in MAC games, four of which were played away from Kent. They’ve lost eight games in a row.

Audio for the game starts at 6:45 on Ton WHLO 640 and Golden Flash iHeart Radio. You can get video and live statistics through the Kent State website.
