Women’s Hoops Announces Addition of Contests with Marist and Quinnipiac
Army West Point Women’s Basketball added two more nonconference games to its slate Wednesday afternoon. The Black Knights are set to play Marist at 1 p.m. this Saturday, December 5, in Christl Arena. The Cadets will also take on Quinnipiac in Hamden, Conn., at 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 12.
The Black Knights are up 9-6 in the series against Marist. This will mark the 16th meeting in program history. The two teams faced off against each other for the first time during the 1977-78 season. The last time the two schools met was on December 28, 1999, in McCann Arena, in Poughkeepsie. Army halted the Red Foxes from expanding their five-game win streak in the series, earning the 72-63 triumph in the contest.
Prior to taking over at the helm at West Point, Army Head Coach Dave Magarity served as the head coach of Marist's men's team from 1986-2004. During those years he held a record of 253-258 and lead them to two postseason berths, earning a spot in the 1987 NCAA Tournament and the 1996 NIT.
Army's matchup with Quinnipiac will be the seventh all-time meeting between the two schools. The Bobcats won the first five tilts in the series, but won the most recent game, 67-57, on Nov. 15, 2015. The Black Knights had a trio of double-digits scorers in that game led by Kelsey Minato (26), Brianna Johnson (15) and Aimee Oertner (10).
Game dates and times are subject to change.
