Quinnipiac-Wagner preview

Men’s basketball gameday
Quinnipiac at Wagner
When: Today, 7 p.m.
Where: Staten Island, N.Y.
Records: Quinnipiac (12-5, 4-2 Northeast Conference); Wagner (8-9, 4-2)
Radio: WQUN-1220
KEEP AN EYE ON
Scouting Wagner: When the Skyhawks upset the Bobcats 73-68 earlier in the season it was one of the biggest wins in recent years for the program. Since then, Wagner has become a legitimate force in the Northeast Conference and coached by Danny Hurley they have played with a great deal of confidence. Tyler Murray lit up the Bobcats for 28 in the win at Hamden in a game Wagner won while Quinnipiac’s Justin Rutty was still in the lineup.

Scouting Quinnipiac: The Bobcats won a big game without Rutty over the weekend. Deontay Twyman scored 23 points as Quinnipiac built a double-digit lead and held off Central Connecticut State 73-68. The victory put the Bobcats in a tie with Wagner and Robert Morris for second place in the conference. Quinnipiac lost to Brown on Monday but that was a non-conference game and clearly the Bobcats are focussing on conference play from here on out. Rutty won’t be back for at least two more weeks.
