Lucky 13! Kent State to Play Indiana In First Round of March Madness
Golden Flashes to Play Friday in Albany, NY
Kent State (28-6) will play Indiana on Friday, March 17, in the first round of the NCAA Division 1 Basketball Tournament in Albany, New York. While 13 is typically an "unlucky" number, the Golden Flashes hope it brings them a victory.
Team members erupted at the news during a watch party at Water Street Tavern in downtown Kent.
The Golden Flashes earned an automatic berth in the tournament after defeating Toledo in the MAC Championship game, 93-78.
Kent State last earned a spot in the tournament in 2017, when the team lost to UCLA in a first-round matchup in Sacramento.
