Circle These Dates

  • 2/16 (at Air Force): These two teams have had enjoyable games in the past, including last year’s 8-7 win by the Falcons. Both teams had tough 2018 seasons for different reasons, but they both hope to return to the top of their respective conference in 2019 and return a good chunk of their players.
  • 3/8 (at North Carolina): It’s evident that Marist is beefing up their nonconference schedule, with proof coming last year with the Red Foxes taking on Maryland and Yale. The results didn’t go their way, but UNC can be an interesting team as they showed last year. Wouldn’t be very surprised that Marist would be able to make it a game and perhaps upset the Tar Heels.
  • 3/16 (vs. Monmouth): After being on the road for having the first five games of the season, the Red Foxes finally have their home opener. That’s rare to have, but it could have positive effects on the program during conference play. Monmouth has risen as a good program in the MAAC, highlighted by their win over Marist in the 2017 MAAC title game.
  • 4/2 (vs. Bucknell): Last year’s matchup was the first game of the season for both games. They’ll trade some early season mistakes and colder weather for a better product and hopefully some nicer weather. It’ll be interesting to see where the Bison stand after last year’s great run that came short of reaching the NCAA Tournament.
  • 4/20 (at Virginia): Another top caliber nonconference opponent and the second ACC squad the Red Foxes face. Virginia has very high expectations going into this season, but did have some trouble with teams that weren’t at their level last year such as Manhattan and Dartmouth. Will that happen again this late into the season?
