North Florida vs. Kennesaw State Prediction

I’m on The Ospreys here. North Florida for my money is the better team on both ends of the floor, and what this North Florida team does better than anyone in the ASUN is shoot the 3 and that’s the weakest area of Kennesaw State’s defense. Kennesaw State just doesn’t have enough offensively for me to think they can get the shots to fall they need to if they slow down UNF here. Give me North Florida.
