Kent State Golden Flashes Tickets for Sale

Junior PG DeAndre Haynes (5.8 assists per game) is back to lead the break, along with 6'-2' junior Armon Gates. Kent State also added 6'-4' Jay Youngblood, the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II National Player of the Year. Winning attracts top new talent, too, so Kent's cupboard is rarely bare. Kent was 13-2 SU/7-6 ATS at home, and 8-5 SU/6-6 ATS on the road last season.

Some highlights from last season: They had a 64-63 upset win at Southwest Missouri State as a +7 dog, and later had one stretch where they won 15 of 16 games. They won't be as strong as a year ago, but will win more games than they lose.
The Kent State Golden Flashes (21-7) are off a strong campaign with a devastating offense that averaged 74 points per game. Two key pieces are gone, however, in 6'-1' senior G Eric Haut (11 ppg) and 7'-0', 250-lb center John Edwards (13 ppg, 6.7 rpg), who is off to the NBA.

The Kent State Golden Flashes do play strong defense (63.9 ppg allowed) and they were 8-5 under the total. They will have to crash the boards more with Edwards gone. 6'-7' junior Cliff Brown (5 ppg, 3 rpg) will get time up front along with 6'-6' sophomore Scott Cutley and 6'-5' sophomore Demetrius Johnson. While the frontcourt is smaller this season, this team has great guard depth.
