The Kennesaw State Owls will play the Florida State Seminoles in a non-conference game on Friday night at the Donald L. Tucker Center in Tallahassee, Florida. Kennesaw State won their first game of the season, while Florida State will be playing their first game of the year here. 

Kennesaw State Preview

The Kennesaw State Owls are 1-0 this season after they defeated Oakwood by a score of 93-46 in their first game. Kennesaw State scored 57 points in the first half, while holding Oakwood to only 20 points. The Owls shot 46.8% from the field, 36.4% on three pointers, and 52.9% on free throws in the win. Kennesaw State recorded 64 rebounds, 23 assists, and turned the ball over 13 times in the game.

Florida State Preview

The Florida State Seminoles were 9-23 (7-13) last year and they finished 11th in the ACC standings. Florida State started last year with a loss to Stetson by a score of 83-74 and they lost their first four games of the season. The Seminoles lost their first game of the ACC Tournament to Georgia Tech by a score of 61-60. Florida State scored 69.3 points per game with 31.4 rebounds per game and 13.4 assists per game, while allowing 76.2 points against per game last year. Darin Green Jr. was the second leading scorer for FSU last year and he returns after averaging 13.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game. Florida State shot 43.6% from the field, 72.6% on free throws, and 33% on three pointers last season.


Kennesaw State got a blowout win in their first game of the year, but that wasn’t against a Division 1 team, so they will have a major step up in competition here. Florida State had a rough season last year and they will try to get off to a better start than they did last season. The Seminoles are very athletic and should be able to control the tempo in this game, but their defense worries me. Last season, they allowed over 76 points against per game and they will be playing a Kennesaw State team that can score. Take the over here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
