Game Notes

Despite moving two home games to the Izod Center (former Meadowlands Arena), the Rams are currently averaging 1,758 (13th -A10) fans a game.  The Rams are the main tenant of the Izod Center now with the Devils and Seton Hall having moved to the Prudential Center in Newark.  The Nets also moved to the Prudential Center for two years before a planned move to Brooklyn.  The future of the Izod Center is unknown.   The Dukes average 3,008 (12th - A10) fans a game.  The Rams are 5-3 at Rose Hill. 
The Dukes currently rank 10th in the nation with 9.8 steals per game.   TJ McConnell ranks 7th in the nation with 2.8 steals per game.

Is this a classic trap game with the Dukes looking forward to Dayton at the CEC on Sunday?
