The UMass Lowell River Hawks (13-18, CONF 7-9) and Hartford Hawks (16-15, CONF 9-7) in an America East Tournament showdown at the ChaseFamily Arena. UMass Lowell and Hartford have played twice this season and the visiting team has won each of the two games.

UMass Lowell has been up and down this season but they have at least been competitive the last couple of weeks winning four of their last six games. OVer the last five games, UMass Lowell’s offense has been strong averaging 77.2 points per game. 

Overall this season River Hawks offense is averaging 74.2 points per game and if their offense can be strong in this game, they will have a chance to win the game. 


Hartford is the higher seeded team in this game, but there could be an argument made they are the team that is struggling more right now. 

Over the last five games, Hartford has won only two of the games, and the offense hasn’t been great averaging only 67 points per game. 

Hartford plays a slower pace and coming into this game they are averaging 65 points while giving up 66.5 points. 

Hartford is led by guard Malik Ellison who comes into this game averaging 18.9 points while shooting 51.9 percent from the field. He hasn’t been healthy for some of the season, but he is healthy now, and a problem for defenses. 

The under is 12-5-1 in UMass Lowell’s last 18 games played on Saturday. The under is 13-6 in UMass Lowell’s last 19 road games. Hartford is 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games played on Saturday. The under is 7-2-1 in Hartford’s last 10 games played on Saturday. The under is 10-3-1 in Hartford’s last 14 games against the America East.

UMass Lowell’s offense is playing well coming into this game and that will be enough to keep them in this game. Back the River Hawks to cover the spread.
