The Monmouth University women’s basketball team takes to the road for its next three games, beginning the stretch Friday evening at Iona. The game is part of a men’s and women’s doubleheader, with the women’s game tipping off at 4:30 p.m. Monmouth is coming off an 83-67 loss to Quinnipiac on Feb. 7. Iona got back in the win column Saturday against Manhattan after seeing its nearly three-month-long, 18-game winning streak snapped Feb. 6 at Rider.

SCOUTING THE IONA GAELS
Unanimous Preseason MAAC Player of the Year Damika Martinez leads the Gaels at 24.7 points per game to go along with 4.6 rebounds per game, while shooting 45.2 percent from long range. Fellow Preseason All-MAAC First Team selection Joy Adams averages a double-double at 18.2 points and 14.0 rebounds to go along with 1.9 steals per game, while Preseason All-MAAC Third Team pick Aleesha Powell has averaged 12.2 points and 3.6 assists. Sabrina Jeridore has contributed 4.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.2 blocks per game, while Haley D’Angelo has dished out a team-best 4.8 assists per game. 

ALL-TIME SERIES VS. IONA
Monmouth owns a 4-3 lead in the all-time series with the Gaels. However, Iona has won the last three meetings in 2007, 2008 and earlier this season. The Hawks took four-straight victories to begin the series in December of 1988, 1993, 2002 and 2003.
 
LAST TIME OUT
Monmouth led Quinnipiac for much of the first 32 minutes, but the Bobcats surged past the Hawks, 83-67, Feb. 7 at the MAC. Chevannah Paalvast matched her season high with 23 points. Quinnipiac outscored the Hawks, 25-5, in the final eight minutes of regulation to pull ahead for good.
