With ASUN play underway, the Owls have a huge week ahead of them hosting FGCU and Stetson. Thursday night at 7 p.m., Kennesaw State will tip off against the defending ASUN Champions on Student Appreciation Night.
This past week, the Kennesaw State men's basketball team finished out non-conference play with a tough road game at Tennessee State before beginning ASUN action at Lipscomb on Saturday, January 7.
The final non-conference game proved to be a good one as the Owls got their best road victory of the season knocking off Tennessee State, who was ranked 61st in the RPI rankings at the time. Kendrick Ray led KSU with 20 points and Nick Masterson and Tyler Hooker both had 15 points each.
In the victory, several Kennesaw State players contributed as eight different players scored. Defensively, KSU posted a season high in blocks against a Division I opponent with seven. Freshman Zach Cameron led the way stuffing four shots in 10 minutes of action. Jordan Jones had the other three blocks for the Owls.
The win made Kennesaw State's record 6-10 going into ASUN Conference play. The six wins matches the most wins during a non-conference season since the Owls joined the Division I ranks.
