IPFW Mastodons vs Kent State Golden Flashes 11/19/2019
Purdue Fort Wayne Mastodons look like they are already putting it all together at the right time picking up a win over Stetson by 24 points. Jarred Godfrey had 19 points, five rebounds and five assists in that game. Matt Holba had production across the board with 15 points, six rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block. Brian Patrick had a decent game with 13 points but the emergence of Marcus DeBerry had been good for the Mastodons. He had 13 points and nine of them came from three-point shots. It will be a momentum booster for the Mastodons getting that win over Stetson but it would take more to beat Kent State at their home floor.
Players to Watch: J. Godfrey (16.4 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 4.6 APG, 1 SPG), B. Patrick (15.6 PPG, 4 RPG, 2 APG, 1.8 SPG), M. Holba (15.2 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 2 APG).
Kent State Golden Flashes
These Golden Flashes look like a team that experienced a lot in their three wins. They had a blowout win over Hiram College and also scored close victories against Wright State and Towson via overtime. Heading into this game against Purdue Fort Wayne, their guns are smoking and they are led by Troy Simons who is their top scorer so far. But what was impressive in their last game was the stepping up of Antonio Williams who had 18 points, seven assists, two rebounds and two steals. With more weapons getting polished for Kent State, it makes them a more dangerous team moving forward. Mastodons will still have to deal with Danny Pippen, who nailed a clutch three in their last game, and Anthony Roberts
Players to Watch: T. Simons (16.3 PPG, 5 RPG), A. Roberts (16.3 PPG, 3 RPG, 1.7 APG), D. Pippen (13.7 PPG, 7.7 RPG, 1.3 APG, 2.3 BPG).
