Niagara Purple Eagles
While the Purple Eagles have dropped three of their last four road games, their win versus the Stags was only their second home win in their last five outings. However, the offense for the Purple Eagles certainly look much better in posting 78 points, compared to just 60 in their last outing versus Manhattan.

Nonetheless, Prochet continues to shoot 45% from three-point range on the season for a team in Niagara that shoots a respectable 36% from the arc. James Towns (11, 4 rebs, 4 ass) is only averaging 29% from long-range, however, continues to provide offense for the team throughout what has been a tough season.
Marshall (11 ppg, 7 rebs) continues to step up his play for the Broncos as he recorded his second straight double-double for Rider over the Peacocks of Saint Peters. Also, he has increased his scoring average as well during the past four games in averaging 21 points along with 11 rebounds per game.
Aside from the double-double from Marshall, leading scorer on the year in Frederick Scott (14 ppg, 6 rebs) also continues to remain solid as he is not only shooting 47% from the perimeter, but, the forward is also connecting on 36% of his three-point attempts.
Point guard Stevie Johnson (11 ppg, 4 ass) also had 12 points in Rider’s victory over the Peacocks as well as he has also been a source of consistency for the Broncos this season. In fact, Jordan is shooting well from the field at this point in addition to making good on 37% of his shots from long-range.
