Another week coming to an end means another edition of the Friday Fives. We (the interns) our on our way back from Indianapolis today after a great time meeting other interns from around the country at the NCAA Headquarters. Get ready for the first weekend of February basketball with today's top plays, marquee matchups and more!
WBB: Hartford at Boston U., Sat. 12 p.m.
The Terriers prevailed on the road against Hartford earlier this year in a low-scoring matchup. How will the Hawks change up their approach in this rematch of two top teams?
MBB: Boston U. at Hartford, Sat. 7 p.m.
The men's version of this matchup will be just as intriguing. Hartford is currently a half game out of third place and Boston U. is riding a three-game winning streak.
WBB: New Hampshire at Stony Brook, Sat. 2 p.m.
These two squads, along with Binghamton, are all tied up for fourth place in the conference. Stony Brook has hit a bit of a rough patch while the Wildcats are riding two straight wins. This is a big opportunity for positioning.
MBB: Maine at UMBC, Sat. 7 p.m.
Coming in tied for fifth place, this game could mean a lot come tournament time. UMBC just earned a hard-fought road win over Binghamton so look to see if it can carry the momentum.
WBB: Binghamton at Albany, Sat. 5 p.m.
The Bearcats have really fought hard on the road this season and own a 2-2 record away from home in conference. This road challenge against the Great Danes will be a huge test for Binghamton.
