Gamenight: Cajuns go for seventh straight win

Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns are on a hot streak.  Tonight they’ll find out how they measure up against the league’s best.

Louisiana (9-14, 6-5 Sun Belt) has won six in a row, five of them in Sun Belt play.  Fresh off their 72-68 win at FIU Thursday night, the Cajuns look for their first-ever Florida sweep.

Getting the seventh will take their best effort of the season.

Despite an embarassing loss (69-42) on the road at Denver on Thursday, Florida Atlantic continues to have the best record in the Sun Belt.  The Owls (18-8, 10-2) never could figure out Denver’s patterned offense and played what Coach Mike Jarvis “a bad basketball game.”  But FAU has been anything but bad most of the season. 

The Cajuns have never won at FAU (0-3).  Last year was their best chance, but Sanchez Hughley’s drive to the basket in the final seconds a year ago broke the Cajuns’ hearts and spoiled a double-digit comeback.

FAU has a great perimeter game, although they haven’t shot the ball that well this season.  The threesome of Raymond Taylor, Alex Tucker and Greg Gantt are a tough matchup for everyone in the league. 

Scottie Farrington is expected to play tonight after missing the game against FIU on Thursday.  His appearance will be needed tonight.  LaRyan Gary, Josh Brown and Travis Bureau were all hobbling yesterday.

Airtime is at 5:30 on
