News and Notes: The Dolphins have defeated the Bloodhounds in four straight years. Their last defeat came in the 2011-12 season where the Bloodhounds won 114-102.

The 2013-14 season was the last time the women won their opening meet, so they will come into tonight’s meet with some extra motivation.
