With both conference races in the home stretch, it is an important night for both Kent State basketball teams.
The men will play in Northwest Ohio against the Bowling Green Falcons (14-12, 6-7). A win for the Flashes will clinch a bye in the first round of the MAC tournament. KSU will looking to split the season series after losing at the MAC Center on January 17, 76-70. This game will be another Centennial Cup challenge game. I will be making the trek over to Anderson Arena to check this one out so look for that coverage either late Wednesday or early Thursday.
Meanwhile, the women will host rival Akron in a huge MAC East showdown. A Kent State win would not only tie the two teams in head-to-head for tie-breaking purposes, but would give the Golden Flashes a two-game advantage with two games to play in MAC action. A victory by Akron would give the Zips a 2-0 mark in head-to-head play against KSU, giving them the tie-breaker for seeding purposes and pull the teams even in the MAC standings at 11-4 apiece.
