I got to the arena early, grabbed a bite, and sat down to watch warm-ups. Fresh off the title, the Cavs still carried team-wide energy […]

On March 10 around 2 p.m. Kent State announced all face-to-face classes would be suspended until April 13 due to the coronavirus. This is the first time I actually took COVID-19 seriously.
