Lasell held on for the win, 76 - 74, but they did not look great. Lasell looked tentative on offense, passing up shots hoping someone else would shoot the ball. Their transition game was not strong and their decision making was questionable. They really looked like they missed their leader and team captain. Saints on the other hand, playing free and easy, without pressure, with nothing to lose, looked like they were going to pull off the upset. Saints blew an 8 point lead with 3 minutes to play but made a lot of shots that they would ordinarily have missed, just to keep the game close. With 29 seconds to play and down by 2 points, Saints came out of a time out and could not even execute a play correctly. Possibly the biggest possession of the year and they did not get a clean shot at the basket.
Saints lose their 18 th game of the year. Saints coach gets his 200 th career loss in just 13 seasons. The double digit loss seasons are really starting to pile up, with no light at the end of the tunnel.
