Cajuns Face Panthers
Louisiana's Ragin' Cajun men's basketball team is back in action on Thursday evening, playing host to the FIU Panthers, in a Sun Belt Conference match-up at the Cajundome.
Louisiana lost to Middle Tennessee, 82-60, last Saturday, to fall to 7-14 overall, and 3-7 in Sun Belt Conference play, while FIU defeated Troy, 61-55, last Saturday, to improve to 10-8 overall, and 5-4 in league play.
The Cajuns are led by freshman center Shawn Long, who is averaging 15.8 points, along with 10.2 rebounds-per-game, while the Panthers are paced by junior forward Tymell Murphy, who is averaging 15.3 points, and 7.2 rebounds an outing.
Louisiana leads the all-time series, 16-6, but FIU won the previous match-up earlier this year, 75-70, back on January 5 in Miami, Florida.
Tip-off time is scheduled for 7:05 pm.
