The two teams met for the first time in the Spring of 1971, and the last meeting between the Rams and Seawolves came a season ago. In that game, Coach Stephanie Gaitley's squad put up an outstanding defensive effort, holding Stony Brook to fewer than 40 points en route to a 41-37 victory.

The Rams entered the week ranked eighth in the nation in scoring defense and are allowing just 50.5 points per game. The Seawolves have held their opponents to just 53.1 points per contest. Stony Brook features only one scorer who averages double figures, as Sabre Proctor has netted an even ten points per game through the team's first seven contests. Senior forward Jessica Previlon averages just under a double-double, with 9.9 points and 9.6 boards per outing.
