- The Leopards are looking to get back into the win column against Princeton after falling at Drexel last time out.

- Freshman Natalie Kucowski has been stellar for the Maroon and White this season, and was recognized by the league office once again this week, earning her second Patriot League Rookie of the Week nod. The Philadelphia, Pa. native is averaging a double-double on the year with 11.3 ppg and 11.4 rpg.

- The Maroon and White’s defense has been excellent to start the season, holding opponents to 57.3 ppg and a 34 percent mark from the floor. The Leopards’ field goal defense ranks first in the Patriot League and 12th nationally. Lafayette will look to reign in a Princeton team that is averaging 68.8 ppg.

- Next up for the Leopards is a trip to Robert Morris on Saturday. That contest is scheduled for a 1 p.m. tip-off.
