Maura Gillooly, G, 5-11, So., 5.9 ppg, 0.6 apg – Notched 7 points against Manhattan

Stephanie Wisniewski, F, 6-2, Fr., 5.0 ppg, 2.8 rpg – 19 blocks on the year


RIDER WOES: So far this season, the Broncs are winless in the MAAC and have won only one game overall – a game against Wagner on Dec. 29th. Rider’s offense has faltered repeatedly. Its loss to Manhattan on Friday marked the first conference game where the team scored more than 60 points. Nonetheless, look for the Broncs to come out charging on Sunday.

BUILDING MOMENTUM: After a tough loss to Iona Friday night, Fairfield must look to get something started as it heads into its last 11 games in MAAC play. Playing with home court advantage should be a plus, since the team has had a rigorous slew of road games over the past two months.
