Now that's a homestand

When Hartford takes to the floor for its quarterfinal game in the America East tournament, the host-school Hawks should be well rested. The Hawks will have had two full weeks since they traveled to UMBC for a Feb. 19 contest.

The Hawks, currently 6-8 and in sixth-place, close the regular season with home games against Stony Brook and New Hampshire. As of today, UMaine and the Hawks would meet in the quarterfinals.

UMaine is currently No. 3 with a small chance of moving to No. 2. For the Black Bears to move up, Boston University must lose its final two games and both are on the road. The Terriers close with Binghamton and Vermont.

If Binghamton were to knock off the Terriers Thursday, it would set up some scoreboard monitoring Sunday at Alfond Arena (where the Black Bears host Albany) and Patrick Gym (where BU and Vermont tangle).

UMaine split with BU, but holds the tiebreak advantage because of the win at Vermont.

Remaining games:

BU: at Binghamton, at Vermont
Maine: Albany
Albany: at Maine
Stony Brook: at Hartford, Binghamton
Hartford: Stony Brook, New Hampshire
New Hampshire: at Hartford
