After dropping a tough series to open conference play against Houston, the Knights (17-15) bounced back with a 2-1 victory over visiting North Florida on Mar. 29. The contest served as StrikeOut Cancer Knight, which raised over $1,000 for cancer research through a silent auction of game-worn pink jerseys.
