New Hampshire Wildcats
The Wildcats have been up and down this year with the duo of Morgan Frame and Cari Reed leading the way. Kelsey Hogan has missed time, though she has been effective when she's on the court, but New Hampshire's under the radar player is a sophomore forward who has been coming into her own during conference player.
Kaylee Kilpatrick is averaging eight points per game on the year, a solid number. However over her last five game, Kilpatrick has notched that total up to 10.6 points per game, including game of 19 and 16 points. The second-year player led New Hampshire in scoring twice during that stretch and is developing into a dangerous third or fourth option for the Wildcats. If Hogan is healthy and everyone else clicks, watch out come tournament time.
Stony Brook Seawolves
The Seawolves are a greatly improved team this year and defense is one of the big reasons why. Though they don't have one dominant leading scorer, Stony Brook boasts a deep array of contributors on offense. One of those contributors in Chikilra Goodman.
The junior guard is one of the best rebounders in the league, despite spending most of her time in the backcourt. Currently her 6.7 rebounds per game rank seventh in the America East. Her contributions on the glass have been invaluable, especially when she still runs the offense to the tune of 3.8 assists per game, which ranks third in the league. Goodman's athleticism in the backcourt has been a huge asset for Stony Brook this year, and if it is going to make a run in the tournament, she'll have to continue playing a high level.
Taylor has also been one of the best free throw shooters in the conference at 80.3 percent. When your best interior player is also your best free throw shooter, you have a huge asset. The ball can remain in Taylor's hands at crunch time and the Catamounts don't miss a beat. Look for her to have a big finish to the season.
