Kennesaw State @ Wake Forest
Current Records: Kennesaw State 2-3; Wake Forest 4-0
What to Know
The Kennesaw State Owls have enjoyed the comforts of home their last three games, but now they must head out on the road. They will square off against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Wake Forest will be strutting in after a win while the Owls will be stumbling in from a defeat.
The matchup between Kennesaw State and the Belmont Bruins last week was not a total blowout, but with Kennesaw State falling 97-78 at home, it was darn close to turning into one.
Meanwhile, everything went Wake Forest’s way against the North Carolina A&T Aggies this past Saturday as they made off with an 87-63 victory. Wake Forest can attribute much of their success to guard Alondes Williams, who had 19 points, and guard Daivien Williamson, who had 18 points.
Kennesaw State is the clear underdog, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. Those burned by picking them against the spread last Friday might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
The Owls are now 2-3 while the Demon Deacons sit at 4-0. A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Kennesaw State has allowed their opponents an average of 9.2 steals per game, the 22nd most in college basketball. To make matters even worse for Kennesaw State, Wake Forest enters the game with 11.5 steals per game on average, good for 14th best in college basketball. In other words, Kennesaw State will need to work extra hard to take care of the ball.
