What to Know

CCSU has enjoyed a two-game homestand but will soon have to dust off their road jerseys. They will square off against the Massachusetts Minutemen at 2:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday at William D. Mullins Center. Both of these teams will be coming in off a loss in a game they were expected to win.

Last Sunday, the Blue Devils were within striking distance but couldn't close the gap as they fell 67-63 to the Jaspers.

Meanwhile, it was a hard-fought game, but the Minutemen had to settle for a 78-75 loss against the Crimson on Friday.

Despite the defeat, Massachusetts got a solid performance out of Matt Cross, who dropped a double-double on 16 points and 16 rebounds.

Even though they lost, Massachusetts were smashing the offensive glass and finished the game with 23 offensive rebounds. They easily outclassed their opponents in that department as Harvard only pulled down 11.

The Blue Devils' win pushed their record up to 1-3, while the Jaspers' bumped their own up to the opposite: 3-1.

This contest is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: CCSU have been smashing the glass this season, having averaged 36 rebounds per game. However, it's not like Massachusetts struggles in that department as they've been even better at 42 per game. Given these competing strengths, it'll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.
