With four regular-season games remaining, Kent State sits in third place in the MAC, one match behind Ohio and Toledo for first place. After defeating archrival Akron 66-64, Toledo 72-59, and Ohio 75-52 on Friday, the Golden Flashes are on an eight-game unbeaten run.

 

According to KenPom, the Golden Flashes are ranked 133rd overall. Their adjusted defensive efficiency is 76th, while their adjusted offensive efficiency is 213th.

 

Sincere Carry tops the squad in scoring with 17.9 points per game, 4.7 assists, and 4.6 rebounds per game. Malique Jacobs ranks second on the squad with 11.8 points per game and 7.4 rebounds.

Ball State Cardinals vs Kent State Golden Flashes. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Kent State Golden Flashes. Right now, Kent State appears to be the MAC’s team to beat, since they are performing better than any other team in the conference.

 

The Golden Flashes covered the spread in seven of their previous eight games, including back-to-back double-digit victories against the top two teams in the rankings. Ball State, on the other hand, still has a lot to prove.

 

They are returning from a tremendous win over Bowling Green, but Bowling Green just fired its second and third highest scorers days before the game and is now not a good basketball club. The defenses will make or break this game.

 

Ball State’s field goal % and three-point shooting percentages are ranked 273rd and 300th, respectively. On the other hand, Kent State is one of the strongest defensive teams in the country, permitting opponents to shoot 39.7 percent from the field, which is 24th in the NCAA, and just 29.8 percent from three, which is 30th. The Kent State Golden Flashes will win to a predicted score of 75–64.
