Cajuns Try to Bounce Back at Troy

After a disappointing loss to South Alabama Thursday night, Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns finish up their Alabama road swing Saturday night when they take on the Troy Trojans at the Trojan Arena.

The Cajuns (11-6, 2-2) struggled from the field and in their half court defense in an 81-73 loss to the Jaguars Thursday night.  They’ll hope to get back on track against the Trojans (7-10, 2-3).  Both of Troy’s wins have come in the state of Arkansas.  Their three losses have all been at home.  Troy lost to UL Monroe Thursday night.

It will be the third consecutive game where the Cajuns will face a coach in his first year with the team.  Phil Cunningham, a long time assistant at Mississippi State, replaced veteran Don Maestri after the 2012-13 season.

The Trojans have had balanced scoring this season with all five starters averaging between eight and 13 points per game.  The Trojans have been red hot from beyond the three point line since conference play began, hitting 42.5 percent of their triples.  Hunter WIlliams, Tevin Calhoun and Jeff Mullahey, all returnees from last season have been the top shooters for the Trojans.

Tipoff is set for 7:30.
