Friday evening was a night of firsts for Division I newbie Kennesaw State: they notched their first-ever road win as a member of the NCAA's top flight, and their first-ever televised win as a D1. And that it came against -- and at -- Atlantic Sun favorite Gardner-Webb was pretty neat too. After a seesaw battle, the Owls came out of the final media time-out and pulled away from their hosts.
Leading the charge was Ragsdale, who chipped in 15 points on 7 for 11 shooting and hit a key three-pointer during a 10-0 first-half KSU run that announded to the Paul Porter Arena crowd that his team wasn't going to wilt in the TV spotlight. Another first: the 6'4", 180 lb. local product led the Division I Owls in rebounds for the first time this year, despite being towered over by the two Boiling Springs bigs.
