FAIRMONT — o o o o o o
The Fairmont State women’s basketball team also travels to Wheeling Jesuit today for a 5:30 p.m. MEC showdown.
The Falcons (12-7, 10-6) currently sit in fourth place in the conference after dropping their last game against No. 10 Glenville State, 115-101, to end their three-game winning streak.
The Cardinals (11-10, 8-9), meanwhile, are fighting to stay above .500.
The matchup appears favorable for Fairmont State, at least on paper.
The Falcons are first in the conference in field-goal percentage at 45.8 percent. They’ll be up against a Cardinals team that is second-to-last in field-goal defense (42.7 percent).
