The Kennesaw State Owls look for their first victory after a rough 0-4 start to the season. The Kennesaw State Owls are averaging 62.8 points on 36.9 percent shooting and allowing 84 points on 50.4 percent shooting. Yonel Brown is averaging 19.5 points and two assists while Kendrick Ray is averaging 16 points and 3.8 rebounds. Nigel Pruitt is the third double-digit scorer and Aubrey Williams is grabbing nine rebounds. The Kennesaw State Owls are shooting 29.6 percent from beyond the arc and are averaging 16 turnovers per game. However, Kennesaw State has played four straight road games, including one against a ranked LSU. Kennesaw State has lost six of its last 10 home games.
The Jaguars are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games and 11-4 ATS in their last 15 road games. The Fighting Owls are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
IUPUI has a deeper offensive team and has been road tested already with three road trips under its belt. Kennesaw struggles to put the ball in the hoop and hasn't been great at covering the number either. I'll eat the reasonable number.
