Players To Watch (CSI): Reigning CUNYAC Rookie of the Year Christina Pasaturo continued where she left off last year when in the first game of the season she recorded a double-double with 19 points and 11 assists on the night. She will continue to be the focal point for this Dolphins team as she is a threat to score from anywhere on the court. Samantha Flecker started her sophomore campaign with an amazing game, pouring in17 points and grabbing eight rebounds in the contest.
Players To Watch (DU): Junior guard Sam Lane, and junior guard Hannah Miller will be the scoring threats for the Rangers tonight and will require the attention of the Dolphins’ top defenders as they average 16 points and 14 points per game.
News and Notes: The last time these two teams faced off against each other came in the 2009 season where the Rangers walked away with a 67-60 victory over the Dolphins. In the last five meetings between these two teams the Dolphins are 2-3 and every game has been decided by less than seven points except for the 1996 meeting where the Dolphins lost by 13. CSI will look to break their two-game losing streak tonight and add another W in the win column.
