MU women's game day/courtesy EO from MU


Monmouth (11-7, 4-3 NEC) vs. Robert Morris (12-6, 6-2 NEC)

January 27, 2007

Tip: 3:00 p.m.

Location: Boylan Gym (2,200) West Long Branch, N.J.

The Monmouth University women's basketball team (11-7, 4-3 NEC) resumes their Northeast Conference ledger when they host Robert Morris (12-6, 6-2 NEC) on Saturday, January 27 at 3 p.m.

The Hawks defeated NJIT 58-54 their last time out in Newark. MU was led by Lindsey Zegowitz (Damascus, Md./Damascus) who scored 11 points. Veronica Randolph (Deerfield Beach, Fla./Deerfield Beach) and Brooke McElroy (Chestefield, Va./Thomas Dale) each pulled down a career-high in rebounds with 12 and 10 respectively against the Highlanders.

The Colonials come into the game as the third-place team in the conference, while the Hawks are fifth. RMU leads the league in scoring, averaging 73.4 points per game, while MU is third, scoring 65.7 points per contest. Monmouth holds the all-time series lead 28-14, but Robert Morris has won the last three meetings, including their last game at Boylan Gym 64-60 on January 9, 2006.

Monmouth is led by Jennifer Bender's 10.2 points and 5.7 rebounds per game, while four Robert Morris players score in double figures per game, led by Chinata Nesbit’s 16.7 ppg.

My pick: MU has depth but may lack enough fire power, RMU 69-65.
