Kristijan Krajina, a graduate student from Osijek, Croatia, who's in his sixth year at Mount St. Mary's, is at home for his final regular-season game today at 2 p.m. against Wagner.

But it won't be the last time the 6-foot-11 Mountaineer plays in front of the Knott Arena crowd.

The Mount has already clinched at least the fourth seed and a home game in the Northeast Conference Tournament quarterfinals, set for March 4. The Mountaineers (14-14, 10-7) can still earn the third seed in the tournament with a win over Wagner if Bryant loses to regular-season conference champion St. Francis Brooklyn today.

Krajina pulled down a career-high 10 rebounds in the Mount's 63-60 loss at Saint Francis (Pa.) on Thursday. He has grabbed seven or more rebounds eight times this season, including six in NEC games. Krajina, who had two seasons ended prematurely by injuries, has recorded 575 points and 399 rebounds in 113 career games for the Mountaineers. He and senior walk-on Aaron Brown will be honored prior to the game on Senior Day.

That won't be the only celebration today in Emmitsburg. The Mount's 1995 team will be honored for the 20th anniversary of MSM's first NEC championship and trip to team to the Division I NCAA tournament. Also being honored are the Mount's NEC women's championship teams from 1993, 1994, 1995.
