Kent St
« on: January 29, 2018, 05:18:00 PM »
Bulls and Flashes split regular season last year. Flashes beat the Bulls 68-65 in Cleveland. There were 75 foul shots taken in that game. You read that right - 75. This game worries me on several fronts. Our guards have been really sloppy, careless, and haven’t been shooting well lately. Kent State has some imposing front court players. If Perkins and Smart get in foul trouble early, it could mean trouble in River City.

I think we need to play OUR game - don't let Kent turn it into a grind it out FT extravaganza - If we force them to try to run with us and play solid defense I think as with most teams their lack of depth will show and we can get a W. This has been one of the games I marked as a tough one since the schedule came out. GO BULLS

I think last year’s “FT extravaganza” defiantly was to Kent’s benefit. Not so sure a similar game this year would be good for them. Plus no more Hall, so even if they wanted to, could they? Their 7fter is good but not overpowering or quick. If the refs want to impact this game (fairly) I think that’s pro UB.

Can someone tell the UB athletics department that we need to get through TONIGHT'S game against Kent State before we start worrying about operation 6000?

Just a thought.

I agree with everyone on this one.  This game makes me very nervous.  On the road against a good Kent State team and we have not been playing well the past 3 halves of basketball.

We need more production out of Davonta Jordan, Wes Clark, and Dontay Caruthers. Granted Clark and Caruthers are battling injuries. If Clark's shoulder is feeling fine, then he needs to step up. Jordan needs to be smarter with the ball and needs shoot the ball better than he has been. Hopefully Caruthers can find his game soon similar to how he was playing against Niagara, and hopefully his leg isn't too much of a bother for him.

Both teams need to keep the fouls to a minimum tonight so that the game is over by 9:00.  State of the Union night.

Yes, it should be another good test to see if UB has the mental toughness against a physical team. It could be a foul plagued game and UB will have to show they can play thru any questionable calls and not belly ache about them. Kent St. has3 players averaging 17, 13,11 with a big 7 footer averaging 8 rebounds a game They have 8 players averaging 16 plus minutes a game. Another win would be great and to come home 9-0 would be even better. Go Bulls!!!!

Why would tonight's game have any impact on advertising for future games?  Even in they lose it doesn't impact the importance of the game or the marketing value.   I guess I don't get this comment.

Albany coach said Kent had more talent than any other team they faced, including Louisville. If we're caught looking ahead to the WMU game then this could be a long night. Gut check time.
"Don’t give me that WNY is getting favorable treatment here. WNY was getting screwed for years and this bill does very little to equalize things. We don’t want to hold back SB/BU & UA but UB has been working on 2020 for 5 years. Don’t say, ‘Because you’re at the finish line you have to wait for us'"

I judge their production, especially Jordan and Caruthers in assists/TO and on the ball defense. They’ve been fine.  Jordan does need to stop traveling.  Clark hasn’t winced off the court lately but pretty sure he is just grinding it out. College career almost over.
