I’m sticking with Kennesaw State here. The Owls have simply been playing the better basketball by a fair margin all season, conference play included, and they’ve been the better team statistically on both ends of the floor. I don’t see Jacksonville State keeping this game close, even at home. I’ll side with the Owls laying the points on the road here.
