Sunday, November 30, 2008

SHREVEPORT – For the second time this season Centenary and Northwestern State will do battle on the hardwood. Just 11 days ago the Gents and Demons played in Baton Rouge at the LSU Invitational, and NSU edged Centenary 69-66.

The two teams have met 152 times, which includes the meeting earlier this season. The Gents hold the all-time advantage 83-69, but before last season Centenary hadn’t won a game since the 2003-04 season meeting.

In that first game this season, Centenary was led by junior Chase Adams, who scored 20 points, while Nick Stallings followed with 16 points and 11 rebounds. For NSU, Michael McConathy led the Demons with 17 points.

Charging up the offense for the Gents is Stallings, who scores 16.6 points a game and pulls down seven rebounds a contest. Following the Houston, Texas, native in scoring is Chase Adams, who pours in 13.3 a game and Gary Redus II, who tacks on 10 points.

For NSU this will be just its second home game of the season, and it also comes into the game with a 3-3 record. The Demons split their last two games of the LSU Invitational, beating Alcorn (77-65) and falling to Troy (100-63).

Offensively, NSU is led by Damon Jones, who is the only student-athlete to score in double figures with 10 points. Behind him is Devin White, who has scored just four points less than Jones and averages 9.3 a game.

Following the I-49 game, Centenary will be back in action on Thursday at South Dakota State, and then travel north to North Dakota State for a game on Saturday. All three games can be heard on 91.3 KSCL and www.GoCentenart.com.
