The impending snow and cold moving across the Midwest has impacted the Kent State men’s basketball team’s schedule as the Flashes’ Tuesday night game against Western Michigan has been rescheduled to Thursday night at 6 p.m.

The Flashes’ initial plan was to depart for Kalamazoo on Monday morning following practice, but snow and inclement weather changed those plans. According to The Weather Channel, the high for Tuesday in Kent is 20 degrees while the high for Wednesday is zero degrees.

The high in Kalamazoo, Michigan on Tuesday is 18 degrees and minus 2 degrees on Wednesday. The Flashes will now leave for Kalamazoo on Wednesday. 

After taking on the Broncos, the Flashes will travel straight to Muncie, Indiana in preparations for their Saturday afternoon match-up against Ball State.
