Cajuns Entertain Warhawks on Reunion Night
The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns have a couple of streaks they'd like to keep intact when they entertain in-state rival ULM Saturday night at the Cajundome.
Louisiana (14-3, 4-0) Sun Belt has won eleven straight games at the Cajundome dating back to last season (8-0 this season) and have won their last ten regular season conference games after opening 4-0 this season.
The game Saturday at 7:00 will follow women's action between the Cajuns and ULM, with that tipoff scheduled for 4:00. Both games can be heard on ESPN1420 and the ESPN1420 mobile app. Hot 107.9 (KHXT-FM) will carry the men's game as well.
The Cajuns will also be hosting a reunion of former basketball players on Saturday. Those men will be treated to the Cajuns shootaround on Saturday afternoon and a tour of the Mosing Student-Atlhlete Performance Center. They will also be recognized at halftime.
Louisiana is closing out a three game homestand Saturday, having already notched wins against Appalachian State (78-45) and Coastal Carolina (81-64) last week.
ULM, meanwhile, will be looking for its first road win of the season. The Warhawks (7-8, 1-3) split a pair of home games last week, defeating Coastal Carolina on Thursday before falling victim to an Appalachian State rally on Saturday. The Warhawks are 7-2 at home, but 0-6 on the road this season.
Three year starter Travis Munnings and Australia native Sam McDaniel lead ULM in scoring with 15.4 ppg. Marvin Jean-Pierre (11.5) is the other double figure scorer for the Warhawks, who lead the Sun Belt in three point field goal percentage (.393) and free throw percentage (.757). ULM is third in three pointers per game (8.9) and second behind the Cajuns in assist/turnover ratio.
This will be the 76th meeting between the two schools with Louisiana holding a 59-23 edge. The Cajuns have won the last three meetings between the two teams.
