What to Know

The Rider Broncs and the Niagara Purple Eagles will face off in a MAAC clash at 7:00 p.m. ET on January 19th at Alumni Gymnasium. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this game.

Last Sunday, the Broncs suffered a bruising 83-60 defeat at the hands of the Red Foxes.

Rider struggled to work together and finished the game with only four assists. That’s the fewest assists they’ve managed all season.

Meanwhile, Niagara unfortunately witnessed the end of their four-game winning streak on Monday. They took a 93-88 hit to the loss column at the hands of the Saints. Niagara didn’t live up to their potential and found themselves falling short of the advantage oddsmakers thought they had coming into the game.

The Broncs’ defeat was their third straight on the road, which bumped their record down to 5-12. As for the Purple Eagles, their defeat ended a three-game streak of wins at home and dropped them to 7-9.

Friday’s contest is shaping up to be a scrappy match: Rider have been smashing the glass this season, having averaged 39.9 rebounds per game. It’s a different story for Niagara, though, as they’ve been averaging only 30.8 rebounds per game. Given Rider’s sizeable advantage in that area, Niagara will need to find a way to close that gap.

Rider came out on top in a nail-biter against Niagara when the teams last played back in January of 2023, sneaking past 65-62. Does Rider have another victory up their sleeve, or will Niagara turn the tables on them? We’ll have the answer soon enough.
