2013-2014 Kennesaw State Men’s Basketball Schedule is out!
The much anticipated release of the Kennesaw State men’s basketball schedule has been released and it doesn’t disappoint. The marquee non-conference games a
re there, such as @Mississippi State (Nov. 14), a rematch from last year against UT-Chattanooga (Nov. 19), @Cincinnati (Nov. 29), the battle of KSU @Kent State (Dec. 1), and the first rematch against Georgia Tech since the Owls defeated the Jackets in the Convocation Center Nov. 15, 2010, 80-63. The Owls also battle @GA Southern (Nov. 18). The big money battle is on Dec. 22 in the Hoosier State against @Indiana. After the Hoosiers, the Owls start their Atlantic Sun Conference schedule on Dec. 30 in Jacksonville versus North Florida. The slate of Atlantic Sun loosk to be fairly distributed, as the Owls hit North Florida and Jacksonville on the same road trip, before heading home for the first ASun home game of the season on Jan. 4 against ETSU. The Owls have a challenging road trip from Jan. 10-18, where they travel south to take on Mercer, then maneuver Interstate 75 north to meet Lipscomb in Nashville on Jan. 16 before ending the road trip two days later in Highland Heights, Kentucky against Northern Kentucky.
Overall, this appears to be a favorable travel schedule for the Owls. The one thing that is glaring is the Owls play a home game versus Truett-McConnell in “The Barn” on Nov. 26 and do not play at home again until Jan. 4. The entire month of December, KSU will be on the road. Last season, the Owls played two games in December. Another interesting tidbit from the schedule release is the Owls have changed their start times on most Saturday home games to 12:00 P.M., whereas last year they played consistently at 2:30 P.M. on the home floor. Fifteen home games and fifteen away games is a nice balanced schedule, but there is an opportunity for more home games with the new Atlantic Sun Championship rules. For the first time, and rightly so, the higher seeds will host a home post-season game. The A-Sun got this change correct and it will benefit the team and the fans who struck gold during the season. Owl fans have a lot to be excited about and the tip will be before you know it.
