The Kennesaw State Owls and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons meet in college basketball action from the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Tuesday night.

The Kennesaw State Owls will try to rebound from a 97-78 loss to Belmont in their last game. Chris Youngblood leads the Owls in scoring with 13.4 PPG while Terrell Burden has 12.4 PPG with 4.8 APG and Spencer Rodgers has 11.6 PPG with 4.6 RPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Kennesaw State this season. Demond Robinson also has a team-high 6.4 RPG this season for the Owls. As a team, Kennesaw State is averaging 78.6 PPG on 45.9% shooting from the field, 30.7% from three and 72.9% from the foul line while allowing 69.4 PPG on 43.6% shooting from the field and 30.2% from three this season.

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons will be out to add to an 87-63 win over North Carolina A&T last time out. Alondes Williams leads the Demon Deacons in scoring with 20.8 PPG along with 4.5 RPPG and 3.8 APG while Daivien Williamson has 17 PPG and Jake LaRavia’s got 13 PPg with 3.8 RPG and 2.8 APG. Carter Whitt also has a team-high 4 APG and KhadimSy has a team-high 5.8 RPg as well this season for Wake Forest. As a team, Wake Forest is averaging 86.5 PPG on 52.9% shooting from the field, 40.2% from three and 66.3% from the foul line while allowing 64 PPG on 40.2% shooting from the field and 34.4% from three this season.

Kennesaw State is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the over is 10-1-1 in their last 12 games overall. Wake Forest is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win.

I get the case that could be made for the Owls as they already have a pair of solid covers against Power-6 teams this season. However, Wake Forest is just lighting it up right now and while the Owls have brought teams down to their level this season, I don’t know if they’ll have the horses to keep pace with Wake here. Give me the Demon Deacons laying the points here.
