What to look for

Scouting Sacred Heart: Led by high-scoring Shane Gibson the Pioneers won at Quinnipiac 80-74 earlier in the season. Gibson had 31 in the game and is second in the conference in scoring 20.1 points. Wallingford guard Phil Gaetano is fifth in the nation in assists (7.56). Sacred Heart sits in sixth place in the NEC standings, has beaten the Bobcats three straight times, and needs a strong finish to assure a tourney berth.

Scouting Quinnipiac: The Bobcats look for their fifth straight win tonight when they begin a monster stretch to close the regular season. Quinnipiac will play five teams, all in the tournament hunt, in a span of 10 days. All of the games are 50-50 matchups. If Quinnipiac continues its recent roll it could win the NEC title if they fall apart they could miss out of the tourney all together. Coach Tom Moore's team have made a habit of finishing seasons strongly and the Bobcats have won six of their last seven games.
