Women's basketball keys to the game

  • Contain Laura Menty: Menty has scored 31 and 28 points in two games against Fairfield this season. She is the leading scorer in the MAAC averaging 19.4 points per game.
  • Stay out of foul trouble: Too often this season Baendu Lowenthal '09 has had to sit on the bench for the majority of the first half after picking up early fouls. Losing post players early will hurt even more against Menty.
  • Integrate Steph Geehan '10 back into the game: Geehan is returning after a long illness during which she missed both games against Siena. She started her first game against Loyola. Her defense and rebounding will be needed in the tournament.
How the matchups went during the regular season:

Feb. 16: at Fairfield W 60-57
Feb. 24: at Siena L 62-56

The past three seasons have seen the Stags and Saints face off in the MAAC Tournament.  Each game has been decided by one point with Fairfield winning the first two and Siena hitting a last second three last season.
