Getting Ready for a Battle Against the Providence Pilots

Men’s Preview

Coming off two hard fought losses against the undefeated Sisseton Wahpeton Mustangs two weeks ago, the FLBC Men are looking forward to a battle against the Providence Pilots. The Conquerors played two strong games against the Mustangs who are undefeated in the conference this season. The Conquerors and Pilots, both sitting near the middle of NIAC Conference, will clash on Friday and Saturday in a conference doubleheader.

This weekend’s games will have major implications on how the conference tournament seeding looks in under a month. The Pilots are sitting at three wins and five losses which slots them at the seventh in the standings heading into late January. The Conquerors are slotted at the five seed with four wins and four losses in the conference. Each team has six conference games left, so these two games in Minnesota will be key.

The Conquerors will look to stop Providence’s balanced attack. The Pilots will be led on the offensive end by guard Jordan Lawson, who leads the NIAC in scoring at 26 points per game. The Conquerors will also bring a balanced game plan that will start on the defensive end. As of late, the Conquerors have really come together as a unit. Alongside of Sophomores Micah Moan, Luther Zeltinger, and Mikah Olson, there has been large contributions made by guards Isaac Tierney and Phil Berge, who have started playing their best ball as of late. The Conquerors are ready for this weekend’s matchups.
