Kent State On Top Of MAC
MAC Media Day hit Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland Thursday, and Kent State was named this year's preseason favorite to win the conference.
The Golden Flashes, which play in the MAC's East Division, finished last season at 21-11 but missed the NCAA Tournament with a home loss to cross-town rival Akron in its final regular season game.
Now Kent State welcomes back its entire starting lineup, including preseason All-MAC selection Mike Scott. The 6-foot-7 forward started in all 32 games for the Golden Flashes while averaging 9.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game as an All-MAC Honorable Mention.
