The Monmouth University women’s basketball team returns home to face MAAC foe Iona Friday night. The Hawks are coming off a tough 48-45 loss at Niagara in which Monmouth led for most of the game. Meanwhile, the Gaels haven’t lost  in more than two months, winning 14 straight games. Their last loss came on Nov. 12 at St. John’s. Most recently, Iona defeated Manhattan, 70-52, on Monday.

ALL-TIME SERIES VS. IONA
Monmouth owns a 4-2 lead in the all-time series with the Gaels. However, Iona has won the last two meetings in 2007 and 2008. The Hawks took four-straight victories to begin the series in December of 1988, 1993, 2002 and 2003, while the Gaels responded with wins in December 2007 and November 2008.
 
LAST TIME OUT
Monmouth led for almost 38 of 40 minutes at Niagara on Sunday, but was edged, 48-45. The Purple Eagles led for two different 18-second spans late in the second half before the Hawks tied or took the lead on each occasion. But Taylor McKay’s driving lay-up gave Niagara the lead for good with 1:25 left. Monmouth held Niagara to just 12 points in the first half. But Victoria Rampado scored 21 of her game-high 23 points in the second half.
