What to Know

The Kent State Golden Flashes have the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions at noon ET Nov. 16 at Memorial A & C Center. The Golden Flashes will be strutting in after a win while Arkansas-Pine Bluff will be stumbling in from a defeat.

Kent State didn't have too much trouble with the Portland Pilots at home on Monday as they won 77-65.

Meanwhile, it's never fun to lose, and it's even less fun to lose 80-47, which was the final score in Arkansas-Pine Bluff's tilt against the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Sunday. Guard Kylen Milton had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 34 minutes with and four turnovers.

Kent State is the favorite in this one, with an expected 21-point margin of victory. If their 2-0 record against the spread is anything to go by, the prospects look good for bets placed on them.

Kent State is now a perfect 3-0 while Arkansas-Pine Bluff sits at 1-3. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Golden Flashes have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 34.40%, which places them 29th in college basketball. Less enviably, the Golden Lions have only been able to knock down 38.90% percent of their shots, which is the 18th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. So the cards are definitely stacked against Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
