Can the Husson men's basketball team three-peat the NAC? Can the women's team three-peat? The road to the conference title begins tonight.

Coach Warren Caruso and his men's team plays Thomas College in the second game of the doubleheader opener tonight at Newman Gymnasium.

The Eagles are the preseason pick to finish #1. Senior guard Raheem Anderson is closing in on 2,000 career points and has a chance to become the school's all-time leading scorer. Other returnees include Mitch Worcester and Justin Martin.

The Thomas Terriers are coming off a 15-13 season where they lost to Husson in the NAC championship game.

Coach Kissy Walker and her women's team tips off with Thomas College at 5:30pm today. Not only did the Eagles win a second straight NAC crown a year ago but also won a first ever NCAA Tournament game. Their magical season finished with a 23-5 record.

Graduation hit hard - Chandler Guerrette, Danae Johnson and Darla Morales are gone which means about 33 points game are gone.

Junior Kenzie Worcester leads the group of returnees. Anna McKenzie, Sami Ireland and Sarah Bragg also saw lots of time a year ago.

NOTE: Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket/929theticket.com has live coverage of both game tonight. Pregame coverage begins at 5:30pm.
