PBA won in thrilling fashion the last time they ventured into the McArthur Center on EC’s campus as the Fish managed a 73-72 victory last November large in part to the late heroics of now senior guard Jonathan Lawrence who nailed a long two-point jumper with less than a half a second remaining to seal the victory. The Fish also earned a 74-59 victory over the Tritons at the Rubin Arena on December 19th, 2008 behind a 30-point outburst from departed senior David Powell.
After taking on the Tritons, the Sailfish will head north to Minnesota to participate in their first tournament of the season by competing in the Winona State Unviersity Tournament on Friday-Saturday, November 20th-21st.
