The Sea-Hawks (6-4) take on the Dalhousie Tigers (2-6) this upcoming weekend as a two-game series on Dalhousie' home court. Memorial currently stands in second place in the AUS; Dal is in the second last position. Memorial will be looking to solidify their place in the rankings while also trying to chase Acadia who is currently undefeated at the top spot.
The Sea-Hawks split their last two games against the Cape Breton Capers. Coming back from the winter break proved difficult for the Hawks as they played notably slower than what we had witnessed before the break. Having beaten the Tigers in their last meeting at the Fieldhouse, Memorial will be looking to rebuild a winning streak progressing further in to the season.
