The Kennesaw State men's basketball team took another step in the right direction during the 2016-17 season setting a record for wins in the Division I era. It was head coach Al Skinner's second season under the helm and he led a team with six freshmen to the ASUN Semifinals.
The Owls got their second victory ever in the ASUN Tournament at USC Upstate. Senior Kendrick Ray, who had led KSU all year, scored a game high 24 with 18 of those coming in the second half to help secure the first ASUN Tournament victory since 2010.
The team continued to develop under Coach Skinner as they posted a 46.2 field goal percentage and a 41.6 shooting percentage from three-point range. The 41.6 percentage finished as the third best in the country.
Another staple in the Skinner offense is not turning the ball over. Kennesaw State led the ASUN with a 1.2 turnover ratio averaging 15.8 assists per game to only 13.5 turnovers per game.
