The Conquerors, who beat Emmaus earlier in the year by a score of 97-76, lost a tough one at home with a final score of 80-79. Coach Bierle and the Conquerors have been working hard this new year to prepare for two games at Sisseton Wahpeton College.

This is an exciting matchup as Sisseton Wahpeton comes in tied a top of the Conference at 5-0 while FLBC comes in hungry and ready to prove itself at 4-2.

The Men play their first game at 8pm Friday, with the second following on Saturday at 3pm.

Coach De Joseph and the Mustangs will be led by D’Laino Paige, Jamerick Moton, and DJ White. All three are averaging over 17 points per game which puts them in the top 15 in scoring in the NIAC with Paige leading the charge at 19.5 points per game at 9th in the Conference. Terrell Shellman looks to lead the Mustangs on the board as he is averaging over 8 boards a game.

Coach Bierle and the Conquerors will be led by Sophomore guard Micah Moan, who is a top 5 scorer in the Conference at 22 points per game and 2nd in the Conference in assists at 4.8. His offense charge will be followed up by Sophomore rebounding threats Mikah Olson and Luther Zeltinger, who have combined for over 14 boards a game.
