Golden Flashes Open Practice to Faculty, Staff

It was a b-ball bonanza. Last Thursday, Kent State’s hard-court hoopsters held an open practice for faculty, staff, families and friends at the MACC.

Some 100 employees took full advantage of a rare opportunity to see the basketball team in action during an event hosted by the Division of Human Resources.

Head Coach Rob Senderoff put the Golden Flashes (13–3) through a series of drills focused on dribbling, shooting, rebounding, defense and fast breaks. Guests enjoyed complimentary food and beverages courtesy of Brew Kettle, and registered for a chance to win gifts, including a KSU-branded umbrella, backpack, swag bag and a basketball autographed by coach Senderoff.

An animated Flash posed for pictures with guests. Afterwards, coach Senderoff and his staff and players thanked guests for their support, and encouraged attendance at upcoming home games.

Complimentary tickets were given to the first 50 attendees for the basketball double-header last Saturday, when the women (8-6) defeated Western Michigan 75-63, and the men beat Central Michigan 79-73.

The men’s team currently holds the top spot in the Eastern Division of the Mid-American Conference, while the women rank fourth.
