Flashes look for second MAC win Saturday vs. Western Michigan

Kent State gets to see how much of Wednesday’s good play will carry over to a better opponent when it hosts Western Michigan at 2 p.m. Saturday at the MACC.

The Flashes (4-14, 1-7) scored their most points in 12 years in a 95-85 victory over Northern Illinois. But Northern is 8-10, 1-7 and has lost seven games in a row.

Western Michigan is 12-8, 4-4 in the MAC and beat Kent State in Kalamazoo 73-52 on Jan. 13.

In that game, the Broncos outscored KSU 26-11 in the second quarter, and WMU forward Miracle Woods made 11 of 11 field goal attempts.

Wednesday Kent had its highest shooting percentage overall, in three-point shots and in free throws of the season. The Flashes outrebounded Northern by 10 and had their fewest number of turnovers of the season.

Larissa Lurken scored 37 points, most by a Kent State player since 1995.

Audio for the game starts at 1:45 on Ton WHLO 640 and Golden Flash iHeart Radio. You can get video and live statistics through the Kent State website.
