The Under the Radar Game of the Day returns to the Metro Atlantic this afternoon for a Super Bowl pre-game matinee between first place Rider and Quinnipiac.  The Rider Broncs enter today’s game at 9-2 in MAAC play and 16-7 overall, including a thrilling last second win back in December at Penn State.  The Broncs already have a win over Quinnipiac this season, having defeated the Bobcats at home by a 78-60 score back on January 12.  Frederick Scott came off the bench to score 15 points, tops for his team, in that win.  Jordan Allen scored 26 points last time out, in a win over Monmouth, while Dimencio Vaughn picked up a double-double.

Quinnipiac lost a heart-breaker on Friday night at Iona, falling 87-82 in double overtime.  Cameron Young had a huge game in the losing effort for the Bobcats, scoring 31 points, pulling down 11 rebounds and dishing out 5 assists.  Jacob Rigoni had 16 points and Chaise Daniels came off the bench to score 15.  The Bobcats will need a strong effort from the entire team today if they want to knock off the first place Broncs and improve on their 6-5 conference record.
