The Roughriders and Flyers meet for a second time this season, with Western (7-4, 6-1) looking to stay tied atop the league and St. Paul (3-7, 3-3) trying to get above .500 in the Firelands Conference.

WHY TO WATCH: Maybe Western won't run away with the Firelands Conference title this year after a setback to Crestview a week ago. The Roughriders were 2 of 41 from 3-point range in that game. St. Paul had its game last week with New London postponed, and lost a day later to Tiffin Calvert.

Western was a 55-42 winner in the FC opener for both back on Dec. 9, 55-42, in Collins.

WHO TO WATCH: Western Reserve's Nolan Todd, who was chosen as the league's best player a year ago, is one of the area's leading scorers at 18.8 points per game, and the Roughrider offense flows through him.

St. Paul guard Connor Smith averages 4.0 assists per game for a young team that has more scoring balance.

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. Friday

WHERE: St. Paul campus

COVERAGE: Live broadcast starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday with Kyle Knight on play-by-play commentary here at Fandy.com.
