SOME QUICK THOUGHTS:

-With no local games last night (or tonight for that matter); we had a “Female Athlete of the Winter” battle this morning. Suspicious tie; as Mount De Sales’ Cara Facchina and Maryvale’s Stephanie Glavaris are both winners. Perry Hall’s Rachel Smith apparently just missed out. Interesting….

-Binghamton 79, UMBC 66. This is apparently the biggest game in Binghamton history. They won’t drop it.
-Loyola 65, Rider 60. I think the Greyhounds will get this one at home.
