STAYING AFLOAT: Despite losing two of its last five games, Loyola is still in first place in the MAAC. However, after Saturday’s loss to Marist, the Greyhounds lead by only one game. Loyola will fight to the end this Monday, but it will have to go through a red-hot Fairfield squad.

SIX IN A ROW: Fairfield enters Monday’s game coming off a six-game winning streak. On Friday, the Stags beat Canisius for the second time this season. Look for Fairfield to come out especially strong on Monday, since the Stags have home-court advantage. So far this season in conference play, Fairfield is a solid 4-2 in the Nutmeg State.
