Here's Saturday's capsule preview:

Quinnipiac at St. Francis (Pa.)
Today, 4 p.m.

Where: DeGol Arena, Loretto, Pa.

Records: Quinnipiac (9-7, 2-3 Northeast), St. Francis (3-13, 2-3)

Radio: WQUN-1220 AM
Scouting Quinnipiac:
The Bobcats just pulled off their biggest win of the season on Thursday winning at Robert Morris 78-76. Now they get a chance to get back to the .500 mark in the conference. Dave Johnson had his best game of the season against the Colonials with 18 points including 8-for-8 from the free throw line, a spot that has hurt Quinnipiac badly this season. James Johnson led the team with 22 points. This is the second of four straight road games for the Quinnipiac in a crucial stretch.
Scouting St. Francis (Pa.):
The Red Flash has lost six straight and never seemed to recover after the loss of star Umar Shannon early in the season. A tough defensive team, St. Francis has struggled to score all season and are led by 6-8 forward Scott Eatherton. Quinnipiac beat the Red Flash last season after opening up the game on a 22-0 run and cruised the rest of the way. The Red Flash are coming off a three-point loss to Sacred Heart which snapped its three-game home winning streak.
