For the first time since 2008, the Golden Flashes are dancin'!
As a 14-seed, Kent State men's basketball team drew a first round match-up with number 3 seed UCLA. They're playing in the South bracket, which for some reason is playing their games out in California.
The Golden Flashes and the Bruins tipoff at 9:57 p.m. EST, Friday night. While a few from the local fan base were able to make the trip to Sacramento for the first round game, the majority were not able to.
With that in mind, Kent State University is hosting an official "watch party" on campus. The official "Hoopin' at the Hub" watch party will be held at the KSU Student Center and will feature giveaways, music, and of course cheering on the Flashes in round 1 of the tournamnet.
The University says multiple big screens will be set up around the Student Center and there will be plenty of room for everyone to comforatably watch.
