Wagner at St Francis (Pa), 5:00 PM Eastern, ESPNU
Don’t miss our latest Bracket Rundown podcast.
One of our favorite leagues, the Northeast Conference, takes center stage tonight for our Under the Radar Game of the Day. Entering play tonight, Wagner is tied for first place with Robert Morris at 6-2 in NEC play. In one of the strangest scheduling quirks we have seen in years, Wagner played home games against St Francis and Robert Morris last week and is playing the exact same two teams this week, on the road. The Seahawks swept these two games, including a 9 point win last Thursday night over the Red Flash. Wagner was led by JoJo Cooper in that game, as he put up a double-double with 17 points and 10 assists.
The Red Flash, who are half a game behind St Francis (Brooklyn) at 5-3 in conference play will be looking for revenge tonight and a chance to move into a potential tie for first place (depending on what Robert Morris does tonight against Scared Heart). The Red Flash were able to bounce back from last week’s loss at Wagner to pick up a win against Sacred Heart over the weekend, behind 21 points from Jamaal King. They will need King and his teammates to step up again tonight if they want to knock the Seahawks and a have chance to move up towards the top of the conference standings.
