Jake Wojcik had 15 points in the loss, while Taj Benning had 20 points and five rebounds in the win over St. Peters the day prior. Wojcik is averaging 13.1 points per game this season, while Benning is averaging 12.5 points per contest.

It was the fourth win in a row for the Golden Griffins despite going nearly six weeks between playing a two-game set against St. Peters in early January and playing Quinnipiac twice last weekend.
