Loyola Greyhounds (2-11, 0-2 Patriot League)
Stephanie Karcz ranks fifth in the Patriot League with 13.9 points per game, while she leads the League with 39 steals and is fourth in rebounding, with 9.1 per game.
Izzy Therien is second on the team in scoring and seventh in the League with 13.6 points per game. She's reached double-figures in scoring through seven of the eight games she's played this season and is coming off of a personal-best 21-point performance against preseason Patriot League favorites Army West Point.
In two Patriot League games, Karcz leads the League in rebounding, with 14.5 per game, and is tied for second in steals, with six. Ashley Hunter is tied for the League lead in blocked shots, with five, while Therien is ranked 11th in the League in scoring, at 14.0 points per game.
Boston University Terriers (6-6, 1-1 Patriot League)
Nia Irving, this week's Patriot League Player of the Week, leads the Terriers with 10.9 points per game, and Katie Nelson is second, averaging 10.6 per game.
Irving also has a team-best 6.9 rebounds per game, while Nelson is tops on the team with 53 assists and 18 steals.
Sophie Beaudry is ranked second in the Patriot League with a team-best 25 blocks.
Boston leads the all-time series, 5-4, and in games played in Boston, 3-2.
The two teams did not meet until January 19, 2014, during both teams' inaugural season in the Patriot League.
The Terriers won the first three games in the series, all in 2014, but the Greyhounds swept the 2014-15 and 2015-16 series meetings to win four-straight games.
Boston won both meetings last year.
Loyola will return home for a pair of games next week, as it hosts Holy Cross on Monday at 7 p.m., and American for Field Trip Day on Thursday at 11:30 a.m.
