Brittany Minondo returned to form with a 14 assist outing and will put the ball in position for her teammates to score against the Bears.
Players to Watch (SJCBK): Lauren Ganun leads the Bears in kills with 178 on the season. Ganun will certainly give the Dolphins’ defense some trouble. Anna Carbone will orchestrate the attacks for the Bears and set her teammates up to spike some points.

CSI will hope they are able to start to turn their season around as it winds down and get to .500 before the start of the CUNYAC Playoffs. Tonight is the Breast Cancer Awareness match for the Dolphins and they please ask that you wear PINK in support of the cause.
