Cardinals fall to No. 8-ranked Franklin & Marshall


Gyokchyan, the leading scorer on the season for the Diplomats, made sure the Cardinals were kept at bay.

“That’s another post player who had a career game against us,” lamented Curle.

Still, Curle was able to take the positive out of the game.

“We played bad basketball for a time,” he said. “But the players never gave up and I’m proud of them for that. Franklin & Marshall is a physical team and it was a physical and emotional game for us.”

The Cardinals will look to get back in the win column today at 6 p.m. when they take on Salisbury in the consolation game. Salisbury dropped a 75-55 contest to Eastern Connecticut State in the first game on Wednesday.

Curle, however, said don’t read too much into that score.

“They are very athletic,” he said. “They beat then No. 1 Virginia Wesleyan (76-67) a couple of weeks ago. So they’re very good.

“They had the same issues as we did tonight.”
