Crusaders face MidAmerica Nazarene: Thursday’s scheduled game against MidAmerica Nazarene shifts to Monday as the Crusaders take on the Pioneers to end the regular season.
Evangel has lost their last three games and enters Monday’s game with a 7-16 record and a 6-11 mark in the Heart of America conference. The Crusaders lost at Peru State Saturday 64-52.
MidAmerica Nazarene is ranked 9th in NAIA-I and carry a 16-game winning streak into the Ashcroft Center. The Pioneers are 26-2 overall, 16-1 in the conference and have clinched the number one seed in the HAAC tournament. A win Monday or a Benedictine loss gives the Pioneers the out-right HAAC regular season championship. They have clinched at least a tie for the conference title and own the tie-breaker with second place Benedictine for the top seed and home court advantage throughout the HAAC tournament scheduled to begin Wednesday.
