Series History

There isn’t a lot of history between the two teams heading into the midweek matchup. MSOE and SNC have only played three games against each other, one in 2006 before they faced off in a pair of contests last season. The Raiders are currently 0-3 against the Green Knights all time.

Scouting the Green Knights โ€“ 1st PLACE NACC

St. Norbert comes into tonight’s contest inside the Kern Center with a pristine 10-0 record in NACC play, good for a one game lead on second place Aurora. The Green Knight’s last loss came back on December 29th against Carroll in a non-conference game and they’ve outscored their opponents to the tune of 167-83 in the last two contests. SNC is led by Kaycee Gierczak who paces the teams in both points and rebounds. The senior guard has had only two games below double digits in points out of 17 total contests this season.

Raiders Report โ€“ T-10th PLACE NACC

After a string of close contests, the Raiders finally broke through for a victory this past Saturday in a 48-32 win over Rockford on the road. They’ve also been getting production out of their starting lineup as of late. Forward Nina Perl scored a career high 20 points in an eight tally loss to Lakeland before junior guard Skylar Flanagan did the same thing with 21 in the victory over the Regents. The Red & White will need to have their defense in high gear, however. While it shouldn’t be a problem with the third least points allowed on average in the NACC (58.5), the Green Knights have the third best offensive output at 67.1 scored in each contest.

MSOE Statistical Leaders

Points Per Game โ€“ Nina Perl (10.1)
Rebounds Per Game โ€“ Raekyiah Williams (6.0)
Assists Per Game โ€“ Grace Ellington (1.9)
