What to Know
The St. Francis (N.Y.) Terriers will square off against the McNeese State Cowboys at noon ET on Friday at The Arena at NW Florida St. McNeese State will be strutting in after a win while the Terriers will be stumbling in from a loss.
It looks like St. Francis (N.Y.) got the smaller half of the wishbone at Thanksgiving dinner. They were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Tuesday as they fell 76-70 to the St. John’s Red Storm. One thing holding St. Francis (N.Y.) back was the mediocre play of guard Larry Moreno, who did not have his best game: he finished with 15 points on 5-for-13 shooting and turned the ball over six times in his 26 minutes on the court.
As for McNeese State, they have more to be thankful for after their game against the Carver College Cougars on Monday. McNeese State steamrolled past Carver College 98-54 at home.
St. Francis (N.Y.)’s defeat took them down to 0-4 while McNeese State’s victory pulled them up to 2-3. A win for the Terriers would reverse both their bad luck and McNeese State’s good luck. We’ll see if St. Francis (N.Y.) manages to pull off that tough task or if McNeese State keeps their momentum going instead.
