What to Know
The SIU-Edwardsville Cougars will square off against the Niagara Purple Eagles at 6:45 p.m. ET on Friday at Beeghly Physical Education Center. The Cougars will be strutting in after a win while Niagara will be stumbling in from a loss.
SIU-Edwardsville took their game at home on Monday with ease, bagging a 75-37 victory over the Knox Prairie Fire.
Meanwhile, Niagara came up short against the Ohio State Buckeyes last Friday, falling 84-74. Guard Noah Thomasson had a rough night: he finished with only four points on 1-for-12 shooting in his 31 minutes on the court.
Niagara’s defeat took them down to 0-2 while SIU-Edwardsville’s victory pulled them up to 1-2. A win for Niagara would reverse both their bad luck and SIU-Edwardsville’s good luck. We’ll see if Niagara manages to pull off that tough task or if the Cougars keep their momentum going instead.
