Matchup notes:
BU leads the all-time series 12-5 advantage and has won eight of the last nine meetings...The two teams met a year ago with the Saints capturing a five-game decision...The match included a 40-38 Siena game-two win, the highest scoring game Binghamton has been involved in since the NCAA went to a 30-point rally scoring format prior to the 2001 season...Siena dropped a 3-2 decision against Albany on Sunday. The loss snapped the Saints 16-match winning streak - the second longest in the nation. The Saints sit atop the MAAC volleyball standings with a perfect 12-0 conference mark...Siena has won the MAAC Championships and advanced to the NCAA Tournament in each of the last two seasons. Senior Nadiege Honore returns as one of the top two hitters in the league. The 2006 Preseason Player of the Year leads the MAAC with 4.24 kills per game. The 2006 MAAC Rookie of the Year, sophomore Burgandy McCurty is second in kills with 3.82 per game and a team-best hitting percentage of .440. Entering the week, McCurty held the fourth-highest hitting clip in the nation.

RECAP: Bearcats register two key league wins over UMBC
Binghamton (13-14, 5-2 America East) swept a pair of matches from UMBC over the weekend to move ahead of the Retrievers and into sole possession of second place in the league standings...Ashley Allen (Mill Creek, Was.) was the driving force averaging 4.57 kills per game and hitting .287 in the two Bearcat victories. Allen hit .409 with a match-high 17 kills to lead BU to a 3-0 sweep of UMBC on Sunday afternoon in Baltimore.
She has now hit in double-digit kills 10 times this season...BU's play at the net proved to be a key factor in the two wins, as the Bearcats outblocked the Retrievers by a combined 30-10 margin and committed only 32 errors compared to UMBC's 72.
