As a Kent State junior (officially this semester), this team is so much better and complete than it has been the past two years. Even though Kent it was one guard down, they have a lot of talented guards on the team to make up.

Kent @ Akron on ESPN2 this Friday night.

Four way tie for second place. Should be interesting and a fun tournament this year.

Can't wait for the regular season champs in Akron to kick Kent State's ass tomorrow night. JAR should be electric!

We will see. Both teams are pretty good this year. It'll be a good game regardless. Unless if you guys just rain three's all night long.

Agreed. Should be a good game, just had to get in the obligatory smack talk. Hall is a machine. Really ate us up the 1st time around.

Yessir. I've talked to some of the guys on the team. Very likable group of kids. Fun to be around.

Hall and Spicer both had big games. We just got Walker back too, so, that'll help as well.
 
As a Kent State grad, I hate where the program is right now. I don't think Senderoff is a good coach at all, and neither was Geno Ford. We haven't been relevant since Jim Christian. Too much reliance on getting sophomore/junior transfers instead of recruiting guys who will be there for 4 years.

I think they are just treading water until some crappy program like Bradley comes along and offers Senderoff some money, and Kent gets a chance to hire a new coach.

I respectfully disagree. I actually like what Senderoff is doing. We've only had one down year in his tenure here so far, which was last season at 16-16. We actually just got one of top guards in Jaylin Walker who they recruited and will be here for a while. He's been doing great. The transfers he's got, especially Jimmy Hall, have been great. The players like and respect him and also bought into his system, which is what is important.

His years have been 4/5 of the worst seasons Kent has had since before Gary Waters.

Maybe I was just spoiled by the Waters/Heath/Christian years, but I have higher expectations for the program than what Ford and Senderoff have delivered.

Kent State clinches fifth seed. Will play 12th seed Bowling Green in Kent this Monday.
 
UA should be the slight favorite, but I'm sticking with my preseason pick, OU.

Kaminski has been disappointing, but Simmons has been as advertised and Tony Campbell might be MAC POY.
 
I'm going Akron, although a possible 2nd round matchup with Toledo makes me a bit nervous...they seem to have Akron's number.

Here are my full picks:

1st Round

EMU over Toledo
Kent over BG
NIU over Western Michigan
Miami over Ball State

2nd Round

Akron over EMU
CMU over Kent
Ohio over NIU
Buffalo over Miami

Semis

Akron over CMU
Ohio over Buffalo

Finals

Akron over Ohio
