The Monmouth University women’s basketball team returns to Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play Friday morning when it travels to Buffalo, N.Y., to take on Canisius. The Hawks are riding a two-game winning streak, the first of which came against the Golden Griffins on Jan. 10. Most recently, the Hawks cruised past Siena, 64-49, Monday morning on the road. Canisius bounced back from the 64-56 loss in West Long Branch with a 76-72 victory at Rider on Sunday.

SCOUTING THE CANISIUS GOLDEN GRIFFINS
Canisius is led by Preseason All-MAAC Third Team pick Jamie Ruttle, who is averaging 10.6 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. Kayla Hoohuli is close behind at 9.8 points per game, while Tiahana Mills is a strong all-around contributor at 7.7 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. Jen Morabito has contributed 7.4 points per game. Crystal Porter has also added 6.5 points and 5.6 rebounds per game, but left the Jan. 10 game at MU due to injury and did not play Sunday at Rider. Both Jen Lennox and Emily Weber have averaged 5.1 points per game, though Weber has not played since Dec. 16.

ALL-TIME SERIES VS. CANISIUS
Monmouth and Canisius met for the first time in the two programs’ histories on Jan. 10, with the Hawks taking a 64-56 victory at the MAC.
 
LAST TIME OUT
Shira Shecht and Mia Hopkins scored 13 points apiece to lead a balanced Monmouth attack in a 64-49 victory Monday at Siena. Shecht was 5-of-6 from the floor and grabbed a career-high nine rebounds, narrowly missing her first-career double-double. Hopkins hit 6-of-8 field-goal attempts, including her only three-point attempt. Helena Kurt added eight points, while Kasey Chambers and Jenny Horvatinovic had six points apiece. Chevannah Paalvast dished out five assists.
