The Kennesaw St. Owls revealed Lewis Preston's first road non-conference schedule Monday, showing off a smattering of power conference opponents and at least a couple likely ranked foes. The Wisconsin Badgers and Baylor Bears should each enter the season in the top 25, while the Missouri Tigers will be a team to eye as new coach Frank Haith takes over. The Owls will get to play both sides of the great Earnest Ross exchange, also drawing a date against the Auburn Tigers.
Wisconsin's imposing home court advantage and deep NCAA Tournament run would make for an exciting opportunity to earn national exposure if anybody could actually stand to watch Wisconsin basketball games. Besides, the last time an Atlantic Sun team took on the Badgers, it did not end well.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets fans will be dismayed to learn they won't have a chance to avenge Paul Hewitt's career-ending losing streak against the Owls.
