Good evening everyone and welcome back to another women’s basketball live blog. I am Anthony Covino, the sports editor for the FDU Equinox. I will be joined by our managing editor, Amaya Morales, who will be producing the live blog and our student lifestyle editor, Naniyah McClain, who will be updating Twitter throughout the game.

FDU will be taking on Wagner in the second round-robin game at the Spiro Sports Center in Staten Island, NJ. FDU is 11-7, 7-6 NEC while Wagner is 7-3, 7-2 NEC as FDU snapped Wagner’s six game win streak with their 50-48 win where senior forward Madison Stanley made the game winning shot with a second to go to secure the Knights win. This game will be as entertaining as the first with both team offense and defense both in rhythm for both teams.
