He also ranks second on the team with a 54.7 (29-for-53) shooting percentage. Kirkendoll also became the first player in the Centenary NCAA Division III era to eclipse the 30-point mark in a season-opening game, scoring 35 in an 89-81 loss to East Texas Baptist on November 15.
On the weekend in the third annual SCAC/Southern Athletic Association Classic, he helped the Gents win its first game of the season, 74-66, with 28 points against Millsaps November 18.
