Gainesville, FL –NJCAA #3 Daytona State College remained undefeated in Mid-Florida Conference play on Wednesday night, defeating the Santa Fe Saints 68-53, the Falcons 25th straight victory. Their last loss came on November 3 and they've won their last 11 games by double digits.

The loss didn't have any effect on the postseason for Santa Fe, who have already clinched the MFC #2 seed at the FCSAA Tournament in Ocala March 3-5. The Saints will play the Southern Conference #2 seed in first round action on March 3 at the College of Central Florida.
