The Owls snapped a 12-game losing streak on Saturday, and also notched their first Atlantic Sun conference win of the season.

The 1-13 Kennesaw St. Owls won their biggest game of the season on Saturday afternoon, upsetting the Mercer Bears 83-75 at home. The Owls shot better than 50 percent from the floor, and better than 64 percent from three-point range, allowing them to take their biggest scalp of the season so far.

Delbert Love led all scorers with 32 points for Kennesaw State, and Markeith Cummings chipped in 21 points, seven rebounds and five assists. The Owls made it to the free-throw line an astounding 55 times, and converted more free throws (38) than Mercer even took (24).

Travis Smith led the Bears with 18 points, and Langston Hall had 13 points. Bud Thomas finished with 12 points, and Jakob Gollon had 10 points and seven rebounds. The loss is Mercer's first in conference play.
