COLLEGE BASKETBALL: MAR 11 MAC Tournament - Kent State vs Toledo

On Friday night, the Indiana Hoosiers take on the Mid-American Conference tournament champions Kent State Golden Flashes. Former assistant coach at IU underneath Kelvin Sampson from 2006-2008 is in his twelfth season at the helm of program. His team will enter Friday night’s contest 28-6 with losses to Charleston (74-72), Houston (49-44), Gonzaga (73-66), Northern Illinois (86-76), Akron (67-55), and Ball State (82-70). They are led in scoring by their fifth year senior point guard Sincere Carry at 17.6 points per game.

The head coach of one of the team that was able to knock off Kent State in Michael Lewis of Ball State joined the Fan Midday Show with Brian Noe and Jimmy Cook on Thursday afternoon to provide a scouting report on the Golden Flashes. Other topics that Lewis discussed with Noe and Cook were:

  • What Kent State excels at on the offensive and defensive end of the floor
  • How proud he is of his team for buying into his coaching philosophy so early
  • Why he doesn’t take playing or coaching in the NCAA Tournament for granted
