The Monmouth Hawks (14-11, CONF 8-6) and Marist Red Foxes (6-17, CONF 5-9) face off in a MAAC showdown at McCann Arena. The Hawks knocked off the Red Foxes 74-66 in the middle of January.

The Hawks are led by Deion Hammond who is averaging 16.2 points while shooting 42 percent from the field.  Monmouth is a good offensive team, but to have success the defense is going to need to find a way to lock down.

The Red Foxes have had all kinds of struggles this season and they come into this game having lost three of the last four games. Marist hasn’t been a good offensive team all season averaging 60.8 points per game, and at home that number only jumps up a few points. 

The Red Foxes don’t really have a star player, and the leader scorer is Michael Cubbage who is averaging only 10 points per game. 

The first time Marist faced off against the Hawks, the offense didn’t have enough success, and they are going to need to play better in this game. 

The road team is 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings between the Hawks and Red Foxes. The under is 8-1-1 in the Red Foxes last ten games. The Red Foxes are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings. 

Even on the road, the Hawks are going to get out to a fast start and they should have no issue covering this spread. This is a really nice play.
