The Husson Eagles and Bowdoin Polar Bears know each other well. They've play a non-conference game almost every year and Bowdoin won this year's matchup 88-58 back on January 16th.

But when they meet tonight the stakes will be much higher. It's the first round of the NCAA Division III Tournament. The NAC champion Eagles play in a regional for the third straight year. The #5 nationally ranked Polar Bears play in a regional for the 17th time in the last 18 years.

The Eagles are led by junior guard Kenzie Worcester who is averaging close to 19 PPG. The Polar Bears balanced scoring attack is led by Abby Kelly (12 PPG) and Kate Kerrigan (10 PPG).

FDU-Florham from New Jersey and Skidmore College from New York meet in the first game of the regional.

The winners play on Saturday for the right to move into the final 16 next week.
