Shoulda skipped the game

The Centenary-LSUS basketball exhibition game was a great game for fans to watch, but it was a game that Centenary probably shouldn't have played this season if they wanted to save face.

The Pilots had the senior leadership in Josh Porter and J'Quincy Jones to get the job done. Meanwhile, the Gents are in a re-building season with seven true freshmen and three sophomores. Centenary might have been okay in the contest had junior leaders Nick Stallings and Tyrone Hamilton not gotten in early foul trouble.

Faced with playing his youngsters more than he'd planned, coach Rob Flaska found himself behind the 8-ball.

Now, the Division I Gents are left with the ignominy of losing to an NAIA school, albeit it a very, very good one. Regardless of what the Gents do the remainder of the season, local people will say, "yeah, but they got beat by LSUS."
