Nico Galette leads the Pioneers in scoring and rebounding with 13.5 PPG and 7.1 RPG while Alex Sobel has 11.9 PPG along with 7 RPG as well this season.

Sacred Heart vs. Stonehill Prediction

I’m on Sacred Heart here. Stonehill may have gotten the win last time out, but it doesn’t excuse the fact that the Skyhawks have been one of the worst teams in the country for a large part of the season and this is still a team that’s won just four games this season. Sacred Heart has had issues of their own, but they’re far more consistent on both ends of the floor and I simply trust them a lot more in a spot like this. Give me the Pioneers on the road in this one.

Chris’s Pick Sacred Heart -4.5
