Lafayette, LA – The SUNO Knights stepped up in class, taking on NCAA Division I foe Louisiana-Lafayette in the Cajundome. In the first meeting between the schools, SUNO gave the Ragin’ Cajuns all they could handle before losing 76-66. SUNO played very well in the first half, slowing the pace of the ball game and taking a two-point lead into the half. UL-L upped the tempo in the second half, and though SUNO put up a great fight, ultimately they just couldn’t keep pace with the Cajus. Anthony Turner came off of the bench to lead the Knights with 16 points and 16 boards. Joshua Major added 15 but SUNO didn’t get its usual production from headliners Kevin Duke and Clyde Moore who were held to a combined 10 points and 3 assists while committing 10 turnovers. UL-L forward Shawn Long led all scorers with 22 points while pulling down 12 rebounds.
SUNO next hits the road to play in the Memphis HBCU Classic. The Knights match up against Wiley College Friday night at 7pm.
