Saturday was a tough one for the Minutemen. They fought back from a 17-point hole and tied the game on two occasions, but couldn't quite get over the hump and take the lead. On top of that, junior Maxie Esho was injured with around four minutes to play in the first half when he caught an elbow in the head going for a rebound. The team has lost three of its last four but is undefeated at home and returns to the Mullins Center on Wednesday to face La Salle. Tip off is at 7 p.m.
