Quinnipiac-Mount St. Mary's preview



Where: Emmitsburg, Md.

When: Today, 7 p.m.

Radio: WQUN-1220 AM

Records: Quinnipiac (12-6, 4-3 Northeast); Mount St. Mary’s (6-14, 4-3)

Scouting Quinnipiac: The Bobcats have lost two straight since knocking off Central Connecticut State last week. Quinnipiac allowed 60 points in the second half as Wagner completed a season-series sweep of the Bobcats on Thursday night. James Johnson led the way with 24 points but Quinnipiac fell behind early in the second half and could never get closer than three points the rest of the way. The Bobcats are clearly trying to hang on until star Justin Rutty returns from elbow surgery next month.

Scouting Mount St. Mary’s: The Mount was beat up in its non-conference slate but are currently in a five-way tie for third place in the NEC with the Bobcats. Shawn Atupen scored 20 points in the Mount’s 61-45 win over Sacred Heart on Thursday for its second straight win. The Mountaineers outscored Sacred Heart 34-14 in the paint Thursday night, behind the play of forward Atupem who was 8 for 9 from the floor. Quinnipiac beat Mount St. Mary’s at the buzzer earlier in the season on Johnson’s steal and layup as time expired.
