Kent State University’s Mens Basketball Team to Play in March Madness Tournament

The Kent State University Men’s basketball team clenched their spot in the March Madness Tournament after beating Akron on Saturday night. This win declared them as the Mid-American Conference (MAC) champions.

This is the first time since 2008 that Kent State has made it to the tournament. Kent State, a #14 seed, will travel to Sacramento, California to face #3 seed, UCLA, on Friday, March 17th.

Kent State students can’t contain their excitement. It’s been a long nine years since the flashes last danced in the tournament and we can’t wait to cheer them on. Good luck golden flashes!
