CMU is now 1-2 in 2012-13 versus ranked foes.   The Golden Eagles are riding a three-game winning streak, but will be playing their first road game in nearly a month. 
 
Bethune-Cookman (5-6, 0-0 MEAC) vs Kent State (1-11, 0-0 MAC)
7 PM • First Meeting
• The Flashes hope to pick up their second win of the season to head on the road to begin Mid-American Conference play with momentum.  Kent State is continuing to improve in different areas of their game after taking some tim to adjust to a new-style offense.  Their turnover margin has decreased to -4.2 compared to their opponents, and they are averaging just 2.8 rebounds less per game than the twelve teams they have faced; those are both areas where they struggled early on in the season.
