Because of the latest winter storm to roll through the metro-Atlanta area, the game against Northern Kentucky originally scheduled for tonight will now be played Friday at 7 p.m. in the KSU Convocation Center.
Saturday’s game against Lipscomb will now take place Sunday at 2 p.m.
For the Owls (4-21, 1-11 Atlantic Sun), this becomes a critical homestand if they hope to advance to the A-Sun tournament next month. With only six games remaining in the regular season, Kennesaw State is 3½ games behind Jacksonville for the final qualifying spot.
The Owls host Jacksonville on Feb. 27, but two losses this weekend would all but mathematically eliminate them from the race.
Kennesaw State is currently on an eight-game losing streak and has lost 16 of its last 17.
The games Friday and Sunday will be streamed live either on ESPN3, as originally scheduled, or on an audio-only feed at KSUOwls.com.
The Kennesaw State women (6-16, 4-7) left for its two-game Florida road trip on Monday to avoid this week’s storm. The Owls will face A-Sun co-leaders Stetson today and Florida Gulf Coast on Saturday.
The Kennesaw State women are on a two-game win streak and are currently seventh in the A-Sun standings. The Owls are one game behind Mercer and two games behind USC-Upstate with seven games to play.
The Kennesaw State baseball team’s season-opening series with Middle Tennessee State will now begin Saturday with a doubleheader, followed by a single game Sunday.
The softball team’s three-day Phyllis Rafter Memorial Tournament, held at Twin Creeks Softball Complex in Woodstock, will now be a two-day event after the cancellation of Friday’s games. More information on the rescheduling of games in the seven-team invitational will be announced today.
