Site: Arena at Harbor Yard, Bridgeport, Conn.
Time: 7:30 p.m.

FAIRFIELD (3-14, 1-4 MAAC)

Jonathan Han, G, 6-0, So., 5.2 ppg, 73 assists – Leads team in assists so far this season

Mike Van Schaick, G, 6-2, Sr., 12.8 ppg, 22 assists – Team’s leading scorer in last 5 contests

Anthony Johnson, C, 6-8, Fr., 8.2 ppg, 4.8 rpg – Leads squad with 46 offensive boards

Rich Flemming, F, 6-7, Fr., 2.6 ppg, 1.6 rpg – Scored 8 points in Tuesday game vs. Niagara

Greg Nero, F, 6-7, Fr., 9.9 ppg, 3.9 rpg – Notched second straight double-double vs. Niagara

RIDER (9-6, 3-2 MAAC)

Ryan Thompson, G, 6-5, Fr., 7.9 ppg, 37 assists – Notched personal-best 10 boards in Tuesday’s win vs. Saint Peter’s

Terrance Mouton, G, 5-11, Sr., 13.7 ppg, 64 assists – 17 points and 6 assists against Saint Peter’s

Harris Mansell, G, 6-3, So., 11.4 ppg, 30 assists – Third on the team in scoring

Jason Thompson, F, 6-10, Jr., 18.7 ppg, 9.5 rpg – Team scoring leader

Joel Green, F, 6-8, Jr., 5.2 ppg, 2.7 rpg – Second on the team in blocked shots (13)


UNFINISHED BUSINESS: In their last game against the Broncs, the Stags lost by only three points, 55-58. Fairfield played great defense for most of the game, but gave up a crucial 12-0 scoring drive late in the second half. The Stags will look to be aggressive on D and consistent on offense – for two halves, not one.

GREG NERO BACK IN ACTION: In back-to-back games, he’s notched a double-double. When thrown into the mix with Flemming and A. Johnson, Nero is yet another big man down low who can provide solid D, rebounding and offense.
