Megan Carter is second in the MAC in free throw shooting at 86.4%. That’s 0.2 percentage points behind leader Courtney Woods of NIU. As a team, Flashes lead the league in foul shooting (76.1%). Carter, who has missed three straight games with mononucleosis, could return to the lineup Saturday when KSU hosts Buffalo. (File photo by David Dermer from KSU website.)

The Flashes have a midweek bye this week, which gives us a chance to catch up where they are statistically in the MAC.

In the standings, they are two games behind Central Michigan, which is threatening to run away with the title. The Chippewas are 5-0 with three road wins, including at Western Michigan and Ohio (both 3-2 and 10-6). Toledo is second at 4-1 but has lost at home and won one game on the road. KSU, Ohio, Buffalo, Western, Eastern Michigan, Ball State are tied for third at 3-2.
