Scouting the Gaels ...

After an up-and-down start to their 2012-13 season, the Gaels have recently gotten hot winning six of their last eight games to bring their record to 9-6 and 3-1 in the MAAC.

Momo Jones leads the team and the MAAC with a 22.7 ppg and a 90.2 free throw conversation rate, while Sean Armand averages 18.1 points and a conference-leading 3.7 made three-pointers a game.
