    Northern Kentucky (6-11, 4-5) controlled the paint, holding a 37-28 rebounding advantage and outscoring Kennesaw State 24-20 inside.

    The Norse shot 44.8 percent (13 of 29) in the first half for a 31-20 halftime lead. Kennesaw State, led by Aaron Anderson's 14 points and 10 rebounds, shot 33.3 percent (8 of 24) in the opening frame.
