Markeith Cummings was in double-digits for the ninth consecutive game. Unfortunately, his mammoth effort was not enough for Kennesaw State on Friday.
The Kennesaw State Owls suffered their ninth consecutive loss on Friday night at the hands of the IPFW Mastodons, 70-47. IPFW led by just four at halftime, but the Mastodons outscored the Owls, 44-25, in the second half.
Markeith Cummings had another great night and was one of the few bright spots for the Owls. The senior guard had 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting. Cummings also made the team's only three-pointer. Overall, Kennesaw State was 1-for-10 from behind the arc. Offense has been an issue for the Owls all season. The team has averaged a meager 58.4 points per game in its first 11 contests.
IPFW, meanwhile, had four players in double figures. Senior guard Frank Gaines led the team with 22 points. Senior forward Mario Hines had 16 points and eight rebounds, and Luis Jacobo contributed 14 points and eight rebounds.
On Sunday, Kennesaw State will visit Pitt. The Owls will then be off until Dec. 31, when they'll host Florida Gulf Coast.
