New dates for the games against Lafayette have not yet been determined.

Sacred Heart 79, Mt. St. Mary’s 71: A 4-0 Northeast Conference start by Mount St. Mary’s women’s basketball, which would have been their best in 21 years, was denied by Sacred Heart. The Pioneers defended their home court and forged a split in the series.

Mt. St. Mary’s 63, Merrimack 52: Deandre Thomas scored a game-high 18 points while Mezie Offurum and Damian Chong Que each tallied their first career double-double to lead Mount St. Mary’s past Merrimack at Knott Arena on Friday afternoon. The Mount swept the two-game Northeast Conference series to improve to 4-5 overall and 3-2 in the NEC.

In his fourth game with the Mountaineers, Thomas, a junior transfer from Samford, hit 6-of-7 from the field and 5-of-6 from three-point range for his season-high 18-point effort. Offurum finished with 14 points and a career-best 13 rebounds for his first collegiate double-double while Chong Qui tallied 10 points and a career-high 10 assists for his first career double-double as well.

It is the first time that two Mountaineers have recorded a double-double in the same game since Donald Carey (11 points, 12 assists) and Jonah Antonio (23 points, 10 rebounds) achieved the feat in a win over York College on November 21, 2017. Chong Qui records the first points-assists double double for the Mount since Junior Robinson had 20 points and 10 assists in a win at Saint Francis on January 13, 2018.
