The long road to postseason March basketball begins tonight for the Husson Eagles basketball teams. It's a men's and women's doubleheader vs long time rival St. Joseph's College.

Both game are live on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket with coverage beginning at 5:30pm.

The Eagles and Monks were conference rivals for years. Now, Husson plays in the North Atlantic Conference while St. Joe's plays in the Great Northeast Athletic Conference. Tonight will be the 84th meeting on the hardwood.

Coach Warren Caruso and his men's team are coming off a 21-7 season and a NAC title. The Eagles will need several players to step up and pick up the points and rebounds lost because of the graduation of all conference player Trevon Butler.

Coach Kissy Walker's women's team was 21-7 and NAC champs a year ago. The back court of Chandler Gurerrette and Kenzie Worcester return. The 13 PPG and 7 RPG of Victoria McIntrye are lost to graduation.

St. Joe's teams have one game in the books. Both teams beat Maine Maritime Academy Tuesday night.
