"Yep, they're the Golden "Flashes" .. now you see them, now you don't!"

wow, what way to put down a team from our area.
especially a team that did better than Akron U.
totally classless IMO

They had a terrible first half and played verrrry uncharacteristicly of their normal play. I congratulate the Kent State team. They had an outstanding year.
OMG

Uh, Stephanie? It's a good idea to mention the names of both teams sometime before the end of an article ("Rebels" doesn't count). Basic Journalism 101.
Oh Well

What a joke. Chistian did a terrible job preparing this team for the tourney. I was embarrassed to say I was kent fan in the first half. What a bitter end to a great year...ridiculous!

Considering that we lost to Kent in basketball several times this year (but beat you like a tied goat last year), all a Zips fan can do is humbly bow his head and say, "BWAAA-HAH-HAH-HAH-HA! " Crushed, crushed I say, in your first national appearance in the Big Dance. Hey, we didn't make it to NCAA, but at least we WON OUR FIRST GAME IN POST SEASON PLAY.

Seriously, Kent has a fine basketball program and is to be congratulated. And as long as you remain Akron's little puppy dog in football, we're cool with you having a smackeral of hope in your otherwise dismal existance.

Yeah, at Akron we produce attorneys, engineers and scientists. At least Kent has a fine (giggle), I mean a great (chuckle) fashion design program! BWAAAA-HAH-HAH-HA-HA-HA! Nice dresses, ya'll.

See ya next fall at the Rubber Bowl. Wear heavy sweaters under the pads, girls, so the bruises won't be so bad.

Hey Zips fans, were you even born the last time the Zips were in the NCAA Tournament ? It was 1986.

These comment boards sure are filled with a lot of small people. I was cheering for Akron in the NIT but after reading what there fans here have to say I might change my mind. But then again what did I expect in NE Ohio, Land of Lowered Expectations.

I agree. I'm pretty sure I could have scored 10 pts on my own in the first half. They suck! Go Zips!

The Zips lost 3 times to the Flashes, so what does that say about them? The Zips suck even worse?

Thank you Flashes for another great season !!!!

"In the horrible first half, the Rebels weren't disrupting the Flashes as much as the Flashes were disrupting themselves."

That seems to be all we, UNLV fans, have heard since the game was over. That it wasn't UNLV so much, it was just Kent played bad.

I'm sorry, but I thought that Kent State hadn't seen a defense like that in some time (maybe against UNC). Its why nearly every non-conference opponent's coach says something to the affect of, "We just haven't seen that kind of defense yet this year"...Kruger's teams are IN YOUR FACE defensively, and Kent shot horribly because they were rushing shots due to the pressure.

It was UNLV applying that pressure, and its why they played bad...it was UNLV not Kent State that made KSU play like it did.
