Cajuns Host Gents
Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun men’s basketball team returns to the hardwood on Tuesday evening, when coach Bob Marlin’s squad plays host to the Centenary Gents in non-conference action.
Louisiana is currently 7-3 on the young season, after defeating Houston, 79-76, in overtime, last Saturday at the Cajundome.
Centenary, who defeated Open Bible College, 93-73, last Saturday, stands at 4-1 on the year.
The Cajuns are led by junior guard Elfrid Payton, who is averaging 20.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 5.5 assists-per-game, and sophomore forward Shawn Long, who is averaging 20.8 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks a contest, while the Gents are paced by senior guard Jonathan Blount, who is averaging 22.6 points-per-game.
Centenary leads the all-time series, 21-18, but Louisiana won the last match-up, 94-62, back in 2011.
Tip-off time is scheduled for 7:05.
