What You Need To Know
- Rider and Marist are meeting for the 54th time, with the Red Foxes owning a 40-13 lead in the series history. The last Bronc victory against Marist came in February of 2003 at home. Marist enters the contest riding a 27-game winning streak against Rider. The Broncs’ last triumph in Poughkeepsie came in January of 2002.

- Last time out, the Broncs scored nine points in the final 28 seconds to stun Siena, 62-61, on the road. It marked the first time this winter that Rider won when trailing at halftime.

- Last week, Kamila Hoskova averaged 19.0 points per game and shot 69 percent (24-of-35) from the field as Rider went 3-0 in MAAC play last week. She currently leads the MAAC in three-point field goal percentage (.447).

- Rider is 4-0 on the road in conference play this season, highlighted by a pair of one-point wins against Siena and Canisius. The Broncs have also scored a 17-point triumph at Manhattan and a 20-point victory versus Niagara.

- Freshman guard Stella Johnson delivered the late-game heroics with a steal and lay-up for the game-winning basket at Siena on Sunday. After a Saint timeout advanced the ball past midcourt, Johnson stole the inbounds pass and went in for a contested lay-up for the eventual game-winner with four seconds left. Without a timeout, Siena saw their inbounds pass once again stolen by Johnson to seal the thrilling come-from-behind win.

- This season, Johnson has twice been named the MAAC Rookie of the Week. She leads the league in field goal percentage (.564) and is second in the conference in steals per game (2.8).

- Robin Perkins scored a career-high 33 points on January 30 against Quinnipiac, including the 1,000th of her collegiate career. With 3:02 left in the third quarter against Siena, she sank free throw for her 1,000th point at Rider. She is the 20th player in program history to reach the milestone.

- Julia Duggan recorded her team-leading fourth double-double of the season against Siena thanks to a 19-point, 10-rebound performance. She has been efficient in the post, knocking down over 50 percent of her shots from the field in five of her last six games.

- Rider is 10-0 when leading at halftime this winter.

- Rider ranks first in the MAAC in field goal percentage (.438) and three-point field-goal percentage defense (.270). The Broncs are second the league in scoring offense (69.1), scoring margin (+4.9), free-throw percentage (.724), field-goal percentage defense (.383), three-point field-goal percentage (.340), steals per game (9.8) and turnover margin (+0.80).
