St Francis Boy’s Basketball Attempts to Ground the Eagles on Senior Night

The St. Francis boy’s basketball team has the district tournament looming, but still have one game left to play in the regular season. The Episcopal School of Jacksonville Eagles are coming into town to conclude their regular season as well. The Eagles will surely be looking to play spoiler to St. Francis’ Senior Night and end their regular season with a win.

Seniors in the Spotlight

As previously mentioned, the game against the Eagles will be Senior Night for the Wolves. They have three seniors on the roster in Miguel Yepez, Nate Duran and Pete Evans. Evans is typically a reserve, but, if the Wolves follow tradition, he should get the start on Thursday night. As for Yepez and Duran, the duo areSt. Francis’ main source of offense, combining for over 18 points per game. Just this week against Windermere, they combined for 38.

Expect both of them to show up and show out on Senior Night. While some may chop this one up as a meaningless game, there is pride on the table. St Francis wants to send their seniors off on a high note.

Eagles Flying High?

As previously mentioned, Episcopal will be looking to ruin the night for the Wolves. The Eagles have had an up-and-down season thus far. Sitting at 12-9, they have been unable to rattle off many wins in a row, but have either beaten or barely lost to quality opponents. They have lost two heartbreakers to Bolles High School(16-7), fell by one to Providence (16-8) and just obliterated Stanton 67-34. This is no cupcake Senior Night for St. Francis. They will have to be on their A game if they want to take down the Eagles.

Date and Time

The game is set to begin at 7:00 PM on Thursday night.
