The Kent State Golden Flashes host the Wright State Raiders in a non-conference college basketball tilt.

The Wright State Raiders need a momentum boost after a 65-62 defeat to Miami (OH) has the team looking at losses in four of five. Wright State managed only 21 first half points with the Redhawks 44.4%-41.7% edge in shooting and six more shots being decisive.

The Raiders saw the twosome of Billy Wampler and Skyelar Potter net 17 points each and combine for eight rebounds  on 10-24 from the field and 7-9 at the line. Loudon Love gave Wright State eight points, four boards and three blocks on 4-7 accuracy followed by Cole Gentry with seven points, three yanks and three assists.

The Kent State Golden Flashes improved to 7-1 with a 78-67 victory versus Norfolk State as an eleven point home favorite. The Golden Flashes held a small 44.6%-43.1% edge in marksmanship with five more looks and a decisive 10-25 from beyond the arc.

Philip Whittington paced a balanced Kent State offense with 16 points and nine rebounds while Jaylin Walker added 15 points, five pulls and four assists on 5-12. The Golden Flashes received 14 points from Antonio Williams on 5-9 accuracy with Jalen Avery and CJ Williamson combining for 20 points.

Wright State Raiders are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up loss and Wright State 

Raiders are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 games following a ATS loss and Wright State Raiders are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. Over is 6-2-1 in Kent State Golden Flashes last 9 non-conference games and over is 3-1-1 in Kent State Golden Flashes last 5 games following a straight up win and under is 11-5 in Kent State Golden Flashes last 16 Saturday games.

I have to say Wright State is a bit perplexing as of late but this a spot they need to right the ship…

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
