What You Need To Know
- Rider and Kennesaw State are meeting for the first time. 

- Kennesaw State is 3-6 this season with wins over Alabama State, Florida A&M and Brewton-Parker (NAIA). The Owls have fallen to Iowa, Bethune-Cookman, UMBC, Chattanooga, South Florida and Michigan. KSU will be playing its first game following a 10-day layoff after the Michigan loss. 

- Rider is 5-0 when holding the opposition to fewer than 70 points.

- The Broncs have outrebounded their opponent in six of eight games and won the two that they were outrebounded.

- Kahlil Thomas has posted four double-doubles on the year, including a 17-point, 14-rebound effort at Pacific.

- Battling first-half foul trouble, Stevie Jordan posted all 12 of his points and four of his six assists without committing a turnover in the second half at Pacific.

- Rider started the season 2-0 with wins at Hampton and Hartford. It was just the program’s third 2-0 start in the last 42 years (2003-04, 2009-10) and the first since the Broncs defeated Mississippi State and Lehigh to begin the 2009-10 season. 

- Xavier Lundy scored a season-high 20 points in the Broncs’ 71-69 league victory over Siena on Dec. 5. Stevie Jordan also dished out a season-high nine assists.

- The Broncs were picked to finish seventh in the MAAC by the league’s coaches. Kahlil Thomas was selected to the Preseason All-MAAC Second Team.

- The Broncs are led by fifth-year Head Coach Kevin Baggett, whose teams have posted a 72-67 record and reached the MAAC Quarterfinals in each of his first four seasons in Lawrenceville. Baggett was the 2015 MAAC Coach of the Year.
