A FEW COMMENTS
The Owls are looking to end a two-game losing streak, both on the road. KSU is 4-2 at the Convocation Center this season, and it marks the first of two straight games for the Owls on their home turf, as they will also host Jacksonville in the ASUN opener for both teams on January 5.
â¦ Toccoa Falls faced another Division I school this season, losing a 92-44 game at Georgia State on December 18th.
â¦ KSU played a tough non-conference schedule in the first 12 games, which currently ranks as the 35th toughest schedule in the country. The Owls’ eight losses came at the hands of Iowa State, Creighton, Belmont, Wake Forest, Mercer, Wofford, Samford and Nebraska. Those eight schools have a combined record of 73-26 (through December 28), while the ISU entered the top 10 ranking in eighth place.
â¦ Kennesaw State is looking for a turnaround year this season, having cut back over 90% of its scoring production and total minutes from last season. The Owls rank 16th nationally in both categories, taking 93.7% of his total points and 91.8% of his total minutes.
â¦ KSU’s experience pays off offensively, as the Owls’ average of 76.2 points per game in the first 12 games is the highest in the team’s Division I history and is ahead of the current school record of 75.0 points per game, set in the 2016-17 season.
