Albertus, Quinnipiac in action

MEN’S BASKETBALL GAMEDAY
GREAT NORTHEAST ATHLETIC CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT —
ALBERTUS MAGNUS at Johnson & Wales
Where: Harborside RAC, Providence, R.I.
When: Thursday, 7 p.m.
Records: Albertus Magnus (17-9, 15-4 GNAC); Johnson & Wales (19-8, 15-4)
Scouting Johnson & Wales: The Wildcats feature Lamonte Thomas, the leading scorer in Division III averaging 30 points. Thomas, who will probably win the conference’s Player of the Year award, has led the team in scoring 14 straight games including a season-high 47 points against Lasell. He is a fantastic 3-point shooter as is the rest of the team but they are vulnerable on the backboards.
Scouting Albertus: The Falcons reached the GNAC semifinals with an easy 100-82 win over Rivier. The defending champs were led by Ray Askew with 26 points and 16 rebounds. AMC has won eight straight including an 83-69 win at Johnson & Wales on Feb. 15. The Falcons crushed the Wildcats on the boards 53-36 in that game.

MONMOUTH AT QUINNIPIAC
Where: TD Bank Sports Center
When: Today, 7 p.m.
Radio: WQUN-1220 AM
Records: Monmouth (9-19, 5-11 Northeast); Quinnipiac (19-8, 11-5)
Scouting Quinnipiac: Two more wins and the Bobcats will lock up the No. 2 seed in next week’s NEC tournament. Quinnipiac has won four straight including a gritty 68-67 win at Central Connecticut State on Saturday. Dave Johnson had a season-high 17 points in the game and James Johnson continued to hit big shots with a pair of late 3-pointers.
Scouting Monmouth: Monmouth has won four of its last nine and needs to win its last two games to earn a berth in the NEC tournament. The Hawks have been competitive in every game down the stretch. Their last five losses are by combined 13 points. Monmouth dropped a tough 62-60 decision against Robert Morris last game. The Hawks hold a 13-12 edge in the all-time series, but Quinnipiac has won seven of the last nine.
