Kent State (20-13) will attempt to build on its 14th 20-win season in 15 years when it hosts a CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament game on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the M.A.C. Center.

The Golden Flashes paid $35,000 for the right to host the first-round tournament game.

"I thank my athletic director Joel Nielsen and my deputy athletic director Devin Crosby, because with those tournaments there is a financial commitment from your university to host a game," said Senderoff. "The fact that they are willing to do that for this group of guys is (important) because at one point our kids were 12-11 and not expected to do as well as we did.

"We fought and I thought really represented the school the right way on the court and off the court. We have had a year that I think our school, our athletic department and our program should be very proud of. We've fought back all year, and I expect us to fight back on Tuesday."

Pairings will be announced on Sunday, but the Flashes expect to host a team from the region -- likely from Ohio or Pennsylvania.
