The Memorial Sea-Hawks (3-15) welcome the Saint Mary's Huskies (12-6) to The Field House this weekend for a two-game series. The first game of the weekend will take place on Friday night at 8:00pm, followed by a rematch at 2:00pm on Saturday. Memorial clinched the final playoff spot last weekend, while Saint Mary's currently sits in fourth place in the AUS. With this weekend's games being worth four points each, both teams still have the possibility of moving into a higher playoff position.
Memorial is coming off a disappointing road weekend in StFX, where they lost both games by double digits, including a 30-point loss on Sunday. The Sea-Hawks look to get back on track this weekend and gain some momentum going into the AUS Playoffs.
Saint Mary's is arguably the hottest team in the AUS right now. Winners of five straight games, after completing a sweep of the Capers last weekend. The winning streak also includes a pair of victories against Acadia.
