OPENING TIP
The Hawks enter the 2017 MAAC Tournament winners of 16 consecutive games, and will be the top seed for the second consecutive season. MU will take on #9 Niagara in the quarterfinals after the Purple Eagles won their opening round game Thursday over Quinnipiac. MU swept Niagara during the regular season.

ALL-TIME SERIES

Monmouth leads the all-time series 8-1 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

With a win tonight, Monmouth would play the winner of the #4 Siena/#5 Fairfield quarterfinal on Sunday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. on ESPN3.
