David Schneider, G, 6-3, Fr., 8.7 ppg, 65 assists – 24 steals on the year

TENACIOUS TRIBE: William and Mary comes into the game riding a three-game winning streak. The Tribe played very well against Drexel during its last time out. Defense stood out the most, as William and Mary held the Dragons to a season-low 47 points. Look for the Tribe to continue the intensity on Saturday.

STAYING IN TOUCH WITH ‘UNCLE MO’: Despite a Wednesday-night loss to Siena, Fairfield has won eight out of its last 10 conference games. The Stags have risen in the standings and are turning quite a few heads. With only two MAAC regular season games to play after Saturday, Fairfield must rebound from its latest loss and keep up the confidence.
