After dropping the first game of the road trip to North Florida in heartbreaking fashion, Kennesaw State got the split after defeating Jacksonville 81-71 on Saturday night. The win against Jacksonville puts KSU at 2-3 in the ASUN and currently in fifth place with a home game coming up on Wednesday, January 25 at 7 p.m. against NJIT.
Against North Florida, the Owls tied up the score at 84 after a Nick Masterson three pointer, but Dallas Moore of the Ospreys had an answer hitting a long floater with 1.5 seconds left to secure the victory for UNF.
The Jacksonville game was tight early, but the Owls used a huge 20-2 run to end the half to go up 18. During the run, James Scott scored 13 of the 20 points. After building a lead as much as 25 in the second half, the Dolphins chipped away getting it down to seven points with two minutes remaining in the game, but didn't get any closer that as the Owls secured their first ASUN road victory 81-71.
