- The Leopards will make the trip to West Point for a rare midweek matinee on Thursday, battling Army at noon inside Christl Arena. The Black Knights and Leopards enter the game with identical 2-2 marks in Patriot League play as the Maroon and White look to start a two-game road swing with a win.
- Known as an offensive program through the years, it's surprisingly been the defense this season that has helped the Leopards to a 2-2 start to Patriot League play. The Leopards are second in the league in three-point percentage defense (34.3%), second in field-goal percentage defense (43.4%) and fifth in scoring defense (73.3 ppg).
- One of six head coaches to lead the same Division I program since the start of the 1995-96 season, head coach Fran O'Hanlon will coach his 320th career Patriot League game on Thursday evening. The game will be his 673rd as a head coach overall as he's in the midst of his 23rd season on College Hill.
- Next up for the Leopards is a trip to Loyola on Sunday for a 2 p.m. tilt with the Greyhounds.
