The Kennesaw St. Owls had a rough trip to Pittsburgh this weekend, falling to the Pitt Panthers 59-43 on Sunday. The Owls were outrebounded 37-19 and committed 17 turnovers, which helped make up for Pitt only shooting 1-8 from three for the game.

Delbert Love led the Owls with 12 points, and Nigel Pruitt had 10 points and five rebounds. They were the only players on the team to make it to double figures in scoring. Kennesaw State shot 60 percent from three point range but only 38 percent overall. Of the 16 field goals the Owls converted, nine were from three. They also only made it to the free throw line five times in the entire game.

Talib Zanna led the Panthers with 12 points and nine rebounds, and J.J. Moore had seven points and eight rebounds. The Panthers did very little with the three point ball all game, instead opting to move the ball inside.

The Owls move to 1-11 on the season, and will next play on New Years Eve when they host Florida Gulf Coast.
