Today • The Blue Devils (11-12, 5-7 NEC) visit Wagner (2-22, 1-12 NEC) in the third game of CCSU's four-game week. The Blue Devils played Quinnipiac on Wednesday, Mount St. Mary's on Saturday, Wagner today and will play LIU Brooklyn on Wednesday. Central and Wagner played once already this season, a 82-53 victory for the Blue Devils at Detrick Gym. In that game CCSU held a 61-23 advantage on the boards.
Series History • The Blue Devils hold a 19-13 advantage in the all-time Division I series between these programs. CCSU has won seven straight against the Seahawks, including four in a row at the Spiro Center. Under head coach Beryl Piper, the Blue Devils have posted an 8-1 record against Wagner.
Wild Weather • Last week's winter weather has caused massive changes to CCSU's women's basketball schedule. The Blue Devils were forced to postpone both games last week, Quinnipiac (2/9) and LIU Brooklyn (2/11), because of the weather. The Quinnipiac game was rescheduled and played on Wednesday, Feb. 13. The LIU game has been rescheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 20. The rescheduled games create a wild schedule in which the Blue Devils went eight days between games and now must play four times in a eight day stretch.
Tight Game at The Mount • The Blue Devils dropped a tight game with the Mount on Saturday afternoon, 50-48. CCSU scored the last 16 points of the game, but it was not enough to overcome a 50-32 deficit. The Blue Devil defense held the Mountaineers scoreless over the final 7:26 of the game. Junior Lauren Arbogast posted her second career double-double in the loss with 18 points and 10 rebounds.
