KENT, Ohio - The Kent State men's basketball team will open Mid-American Conference play with four of its first games at the M.A.C. Center, as the league office released its 2014-15 conference schedule on Tuesday.

The Golden Flashes begin their 18-game conference slate with a home contest against Bowling Green on Wednesday, January 7. After a road trip to Northern Illinois on Saturday, January 10, the Flashes return to the M.A.C. Center for a three-game homestand against Eastern Michigan, Ohio and Toledo from January 14-January 21.

Kent State will renew its rivalry with Akron on Tuesday, February 10 in the first of two scheduled meetings as part of the PNC Wagon Wheel Challenge. The Flashes will host the Zips at the M.A.C. Center for the regular season finale on Friday, March 6.

In its current format, each conference school will play seven teams (five in division, two cross-division) twice and the remaining four cross-division teams once. Kent State's additional cross-divisional matchups are with Ball State and Toledo.

This year's MAC Men's Basketball Tournament will begin Monday, March 9th with first round games on campus before moving to Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena (March 11-14). The MAC Men's Basketball Tournament Championship Game will be played on Saturday, March 14th (7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2).

Head coach Rob Senderoff brings back seven letterwinners and three starters from last season. That core group will be joined by six players in their first season of eligibility for the Flashes, including three with previous Division I playing experience.

Kent State opens the season with a short road trip to Youngstown State on Saturday, November 15. The home opener is scheduled for Tuesday, November 18 against Malone as the first of four home games that week as part of the Men Against Breast Cancer Classic.
