Site: Knott Arena, Emmitsburg

Time: 7:30

Outlook: This game is for first place in the Northeast Conference. Both teams are 11-2, and whichever wins the NEC will be home throughout the tournament.

Monmouth, which has won four of its last five, was the last team to defeat the Mount, 82-77, on Jan. 17. McGuthrie had 36 points, but the Hawks had three players score at least 20 points, led by senior G John Giraldo with 23. Junior F Corey Albano averages about 17 ppg and 7.0 rpg. The Mount, which leads the series, 12-11, is the NEC's highest-scoring team at 76.0 ppg, but Monmouth is its best shooting team at 48 percent, and is tied with Marist for fewest average points allowed at 65.7.
