The Quinnipiac Bobcats (15-15, CONF 10-10) and Monmouth Hawks (18-13, CONF 12-8) face off in the MAAC tournament at the Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall. Monmouth and Quinnipiac faced off twice this season with the home team winning each of the games. 

Quinnipiac currently sits with a .500 record and a late push has helped them get to that point. The Bobcats have won three games in a row and in two of those games they were the outright underdogs. 

In Quinnipiac’s last game they were six point underdogs on the road against Iona, but the offense was able to do just enough late to come away with a one point victory.

Quinnipiac is led by Rich Kelly who is averaging 16.7 points while shooting 42.3 percent from the field. In each of Quinnipiac’s last seven games, Kelly has put up at least 16 points. 

Monmouth is a solid team and they have proven they can compete against anyone in the conference. Coming into this game the Hawks have won two of the last three games, but they come into this game off a loss. 

In Monmouth’s last game the defense let them down against Siena giving up 86 points and that led to the loss. 

The game before their loss against Siena, Monmouth gave up only 45 points and this game is going to come down to what defense shows up. 

Monmouth is led by Deion Hammond who is averaging 16.3 points and shooting 41.3 percent from the field. 

In the last game, even though Monmouth lost, Hammond dropped 27 points while shooting 50 percent from the field. 

The under is 9-2 in Quinnipiac’s last 11 neutral site games. The under is 8-3 in Quinnipiac’s last 11 games overall. Quinnipiac is 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 games overall.The over is 7-1 in the last eight meetings between Monmouth and Quinnipiac. 

Quinnipiac is playing good basketball coming into this one and they should find a lot of success scoring. Look for Monmouth’s defense to struggle, which will be enough for Quinnipiac to cover the spread.
