About Kennesaw State (1-0): The Owls return three starters from a team that won 10 games last season and finished sixth in the Atlantic Sun Conference. They opened the season on Wednesday against lower-division Oglethorpe and won 68-57. Junior guard Tyler Hooker led the way with 25 points.

About Kansas State (0-0): The Wildcats clobbered Pittsburg State 79-39 in their lone exhibition game last week. The real season begins Friday. Barry Brown was held out of that game for precautionary reasons, but he is expected to be full go against the Owls. K-State enters the season ranked No. 12. This is the Cats’ first opportunity to make a statement.

Prediction: K-State 82, Kennesaw State 55 — This should be more competitive than the Pittsburg State game, but not by much. The Wildcats should roll to an easy opening victory.
