Players To Watch (CSI): Samantha Flecker, second leading scorer on the team, is coming off of a huge 22-point win over York College and will look for a repeat performance tonight. Jamie Pifalo is coming off of a season high 15-point game in which her team needed every one of the points to get past the Cardinals. Pifalo drained three, three-point shots to give the Dolphins the lead they needed. Pifalo will look to find her groove tonight against the Cougars. ?
Players To Watch (MEC): The Cougars will be led by Danyelle Foster tonight. Foster is coming off of a 10-point, 9-rebound game against University of Valley Forge and will look to post bigger numbers tonight. In fact, the last time Foster stepped on the court against the Dolphins she recorded a monster 19-point, 16-rebound double-double in the loss. Senior Nia Thompkins is always a threat when she is on the court and will look to add scoring assistance to Foster.
News & Notes: Staten Island has had their way with the Cougars over the years and have tallied up 18- straight wins in a row.

The Dolphins play great defense against the Cougars and the 60 points they allowed earlier this year was the first time the Cougars put up that many points since the 2010 season. The Dolphins are hard to stop when they shoot 35% or better from beyond the arc. Against the Cardinals the Dolphins shot 31% (8-26 3-pt) and also shot over 80% from the free throw line for the first time since they shot 86% against Baruch College
