Woof, brutal draw for the resurgent Indiana Hoosiers. Kent State isn’t the cliche overhyped mid-major — the Flashes are a legitimate giant-killer threat.
Their frontline may not look intimidating on paper but there’s enough physicality up front to keep Trayce Jackson-Davis from going bananas. Per ShotQuality, Kent ranks as the 50th-best team nationally in defending post ups.
