The 'Roos finish the regular season with an overall record of 6-19 and a Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference mark of 3-12 and head into the upcoming SCAC Tournament as the No. 6-seed.
Ransom Okpala scored a late basket to put the 'Roos on top against Centenary, but the Gents managed to draw a foul with under a second left and converted both free throws.
