That’s 37.1 points and 14.2 rebounds per game gone from last season. Coach Rob Senderoff hopes that his team can reload and contend in the MAC once again this season.Last season, Kent State averaged 76.7 points on the season, putting them 54th in scoring offense on the year. The Golden Flashes collected an average of 39.1 rebounds per contest (28th) and dished out an average of 14.3 assists per game this season. Kent State was mediocre on the defensive end of the floor as they surrendered 71.1 points per game, putting them 200th in scoring defense. Tervell Beck is the team’s leading returning scorer with 11.7 points plus 4.8 boards per game. Malique Jacobs (10 points, 4.8 boards) is the other returning double-digit scoring option. Giovanni Santiago, Justyn Hamilton, Jeremiah Hernandez, and James Jordan are back from last season’s team. Sincere Carry, who transferred from Duquesne, will step in at the point while Andrew Garcia (Georgia), DJ Johnson, Akeem Odusipe, Julius Rollins, Jalen Sullinger, and Cli’Ron Hornbeak are all looked at to be contributors on both ends of the floor this season.
