Four double-digit scorers, three career nights lift Men’s Basketball over the Wagner Seahawks.

Central Connecticut men’s basketball’s game against in-state rival Sacred Heart was postponed after a positive COVID-19 test result from a member of the Pioneers’ tier one personnel.

The contest has already been rescheduled at the time of this publication. Its new date is Feb. 17 at 5 p.m. and it will still be played at Detrick Gymnasium.

The Blue Devils were hoping to keep their hot streak rolling after a 85-77 win over Saint Francis U. The win last week improved their record in the Northeast Conference to 4-7. Sophomore guard Greg Outlaw, the Blue Devils’ leading scorer, went out of the game against Saint Francis U just four minutes in, so this additional period of rest will benefit him.

Before Central Connecticut’s rescheduled contest against the Pioneers, the Blue Devils will be hosting Merrimack for a two game series on Feb. 11 and 12. The Warriors are tied for first in the NEC standings with a record of 6-4. Three of Merrimack’s four losses have come on the road.
