The Zips trail Kent State by a game in the Mid-American conference heading into their final tune up before the postseason.
These two squads are pretty evenly matched across the board, but Kent State gains separation boasting a defensive efficiency that ranks 34th in the NCAA.
The Golden Flashes are also unblemished at home, at a perfect 14-0 defending their turf.
Home court will be the difference in this one as Kent State looks for another win, propelled by the playmaking ability of senior guard Sincere Carry.
