The Mountain Hawks claimed the first game of the season series on Jan. 18, 2014 with a 87-82 victory in Bethlehem, Pa. Last season, the two teams split their regular season games, before the Crusaders defeated Lehigh in the quarterfinal round of the Patriot League Tournament by a score of 64-59 on March 7, 2013. The Mountain Hawks had a 10-game winning streak against Holy Cross from 2009-2013, before the Crusaders won a pair of contests last season. In games played at the Hart Center, Holy Cross holds a 19-8 overall record. This series dates back to Feb. 2, 1991, where Holy Cross claimed the 75-55 victory in Worcester. The Crusaders won 26 of the first 27 matchups between these two teams from 1991-2001.

LAST TIME OUT: The Crusaders are coming off a tough-fought 92-85 victory at Army on Feb. 12. With Holy Cross ahead 15-12 at the 11:23 mark of the first half, it exploded on a 23-8 run to gain the 38-20 advantage with 2:49 on the clock. Army cut the deficit to 40-30 with 21 seconds left in the half, but a three-pointer by Alex Smith (Delran, N.J.) gave HC the 43-30 lead at intermission. In the second half, the Crusaders kept the double-digit lead, until the Black Knights were able to bring the score to 74-72 with 6:51 left. Smith canned a three-pointer to give the Crusaders the five point edge (77-72), as they would not let their lead dip below five points for the remainder of the game. Sophomore Raquel Scott (Ridgewood, N.J.) recorded her 12th double-double with a career-best 27 points and 11 rebounds. Smith totaled 23 points and five caroms, while sophomore Kate Gillespie (Washington, D.C.) had a career-high 16 points on five of six shooting from downtown.
