The Norse are favored 79-66 according to KenPom (89% chance of winning).

- EKU not a great shooting team. Only 45.6% on 2-pointers (283rd in the nation).
- Not a good defensive team. Allows 38.7% on threes (285th nationally) and cause very few turnovers. Only turn opponents over 15.2% of the time (333rd nationally).

Quickly turned into a blowout, NKU wins 91-63. My quick math says the Norse shot 79% on twos (34-for-43). Not much resistance presented defensively by the Colonels.
