Cajuns Honor Seniors, Church Tonight at Cajundome

Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns play their final regular season game tonight when they take on in-state rival Louisiana-Monroe at the Cajundome.  Tipoff time is 7:15.

The Cajuns (16-13, 10-5 Sun Belt) will also host “Senior Night,” marking the final regular-season home game for seniors Josh Brown, Scotty Farrington, Darshawn McClellan and David Perez.  Brown leads the team in scoring, McClellan has spent most of the season in the starting lineup after transferring from Vanderbilt, while Farrington and Perez have provided depth off  the bench.

In addition, Louisiana will honor one of the all-time greats in Cajuns basketball history, retiring the jersey of two-time All-American Dean Church.  Church was honored twice by the NAIA and was the first Cajuns’ basketball player to be named an All-American.  Church played from 1960-65.  He ranks 12th all-time on the Cajuns’ scoring list.

The Cajuns defeated Louisana-Monroe (2-17, 1-14) by a score of 67=60 earlier this season in Monroe.

The Cajuns have already clinched a first round bye in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, beginning next Saturday in Hot Springs, AR.  Louisiana will be seeded no lower than fourth and could be seeded as high as #2, depending on results around the league this weekend.

The Cajuns have dominated the series with ULM in games played in Lafayette.  The Warhawks haven’t won in the Hub City since 1957.
