Niagara University’s basketball teams haven’t enjoyed nearly as much success as their counterparts at NCCC.

The NU men’s team lost its sixth straight Monday by a large margin, falling 86-61 at Arkansas State. The Purple Eagles (1-7) were outplayed across the board, with the Red Wolves (5-2) finishing with a better shooting percentage, more free throw attempts, more rebounds, more assists, more second chance points and less turnovers while leading the entire way.

Antoine Mason again led NU in points with a game-high 20. While the total marked a season-low for the junior, it was enough to keep his average at a nation-leading 30 per game, 4.2 higher than second place. Marvin Jordan was the only other Purple Eagle to crack double figures, scoring 14.

Niagara next hosts Siena at 7 p.m. Friday in its Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference opener.

The NU women’s team beat Binghamton on Nov. 23 for its first win of the season, then dropped its next game to Oakland University (Mich.) on Nov. 27. The Purple Eagles (1-4) will look to get back in the win column at 5 p.m. today when the play at Kent State.
