Kent State Flashes

Basketball season kicks off

By admin Published: October 15, 2009

The Kent State men's basketball team will begin practice today for the 2009-2010 season.  The Golden Flashes begin year two under Geno Ford with the most seniors (6) since the 1991-1992 season.  "Our success as a team is going to hinge on the type of year the seniors have," Ford said.  "They can't be just decent.  They have to play with that sense of urgency most seniors have in their last year.  It's a talented group that has to find a way to not have their talent outshine their production."  Dave Carducci from the Record Courier takes a look at five question marks as they begin practice.   

Tyree Evans shot 40 percent from three point range last season.  Over the summer in Italy, Evans connected on 13 triples in four games.  Now, Jeff Goodman, senior college basketball writer at FoxSports.com, has named Evans the 38th best shooter in the country.

The KSU volleyball team (10-10, 3-3) will conclude a four match home stand with games against Ball State (10-9, 3-3) on Friday and Toledo (11-7, 2-4) on Saturday.  Both games will be shown live on K-Zone.

KSU field hockey (8-5, 5-0) will play at Ohio on Friday and host Missouri State on Saturday.  With a pair of wins this weekend, KSU can clinch a first round bye in the MAC Tournament. 

Kent State football will try to get the losing taste out of their mouths when they travel to Eastern Michigan for a 4:00P.M. game with the Eagles at Rynearson Stadium.  EMU seemed upbeat and loose at practice on Wednesday, according to The Eastern Echo.  They will try to get their first victory under new head coach Ron English.

English is trying to lay the foundation at Eastern Michigan.  Even though the first five games of his tenure have been rough, he doesn't stray from his plan, writes AnnArbor.com.

The 'Inside Kent State Sports' show will air tonight from 6-7P.M.  Fans can listen at 1350 AM or at sportsradio1350.com.
