OPENING TIP
Monmouth enters tonight with a chance to clinch its second straight regular season title outright, and have already secured at least a share of it. The Hawks have won a school record 12 games in a row, while Niagara has dropped four of six and fell to Iona on Sunday. MU topped the Purple Eagles on the road in January, 90-83.


ALL-TIME SERIES
Monmouth leads the all-time series 7-1 and have not lost to Niagara since joining the MAAC. The lone Purple Eagles win came in 2008 as a non-conference matchup while MU was a member of the NEC.

UP NEXT

Monmouth heads to Fairfield to take on the Stags on Tuesday, 1/21 at 7:00 p.m.
