View Full Version : An early NCAA surprise team ...

The Golden Flashes of Kent State University sit high atop the Mid American Conference at 5-1.

This team had almost zero preseason buzz, but is ranked in the mid 80's ... within the range of even a possible at large bid to the big dance ... following home wins against Alcorn, UAB, Morehead State and Louisiana Lafayette and a stunning road upset of West Virginia.

The Mountaineers paid dearly for taking the Golden Flashes lightly ... getting blown out by 15 points in the second half on their home court at Morgantown.

Perhaps even more impressive is the lone team to beat Kent State thus far... Cleveland State is 8-1 with an upset win AT then #7 Vandy on the resume (that Vandy court is tough to win at).

They actually sit just outside the top 25 at the moment, and would be only their 3rd tourney appearance ever

How true ... and my Flyers are somewhat a bubble team currently as well
