Women's basketball looks to extend conference streak against Kent State


CMU women's basketball team fights for a loose ball on Jan. 10 at McGuirk Arena.

Since Feb. 2016, Central Michigan women's basketball has not lost a single Mid-American Conference game in McGuirk Arena.

The Chippewas home conference win streak is up to 13 following the 90-54 rout of Bowling Green on Jan. 10. They will look to extend that streak against Kent State at 1 p.m. on Jan. 13 at McGuirk Arena.

The game is the first of a men's and women's basketball double header as the men take on Toledo following the conclusion of the women's Kent State game.

CMU has won its past three match-ups by more than 15 points, two of which were won by over 20 points. Not since CMU's 69-65 win at Ball State  on December 30 has a MAC team come close to the defending regular season conference championship. 

Kent State enters Saturday 9-7 overall and 2-2 in the conference, while CMU holds a 12-3 record on the season and stand as the lone undefeated MAC team at 4-0.
