There are three weeks left until the conference tournament begins. Still up for grabs is homecourt in the quarterfinal round. Here’s a look at how things are shaping up as we head down the home stretch.
It’s been a rough go of it at UNH. The Wildcats (3-20, 1-9 in AE) sit in last place in the league. Their problems on the road have been a major reason why. They are winless in their last 12 road contests. Dating back to last season, UNH has lost 17 straight on the road. Their last win on the road took place on January 27, 2018, at Binghamton by a 57-52 score. Getting out of last place will be key for UNH since only the top eight make the post-season.
Shooting from long distance has not been a problem for the Wildcats. They have made at least ten or more three-point shots in nine of 21 overall games this season. They have made nine long-range goals on three occasions and matched their season-high of thirteen three-point makes on February 3rd at Maine.
Vermont and Stony Brook continue to find themselves in the collegeinsider.com Top 25 poll. Vermont (19-5) is ranked at #13, while the Seawolves (20-5) are at #19. For Stony Brook, they reached the twenty win mark last Saturday at home in a win over Lowell. It’s their first twenty win season in three years and the seventh in program history.
The Hartford Hawks are a team full of good shooters. That ability was on display on January 30TH. The Hawks made 19-three point shots in a 86-60 home win vs Binghamton. The nineteen makes tied a conference single-game record. Hartford, who had last weekend off, now resides in fourth place in the conference.
The Player Of The Week is Anthony Lamb of Vermont. In a two and zero week, Lamb averaged 25 points, ten and a half rebounds, and four blocks. He shot 64 percent from the floor during those games at (18-28). He had 26 points, 14 boards, and four blocks in a win over UAlbany. Before that, he dropped 24 points and seven rebounds in a win over Maine. This is Lamb’s sixth player of the week honor.
The Rookie Of The Week is also no stranger. Binghamton guard Sam Sessions averaged 21.5 points, three rebounds, four and a half assists in a 1-1 week. Sessions scored 28 points with five rebounds and four assists in a win over the Wildcats last week. For Sessions, this is his sixth rookie of the week honor.
