Outlook: The Midshipmen, who were attempting to win three straight for the first time this season, are coming off an 87-77 loss at Holy Cross on Saturday. The loss dropped Navy to 1-5 on the road.

IONA WOMEN (3-10) at MARYLAND (8-7)

Outlook: The Terps are returning from a 70-58 win at Florida State on Saturday. Maryland, which is led by senior F Kesha Camper (10.3 ppg), will be without second-leading scorer Kwana Williams (10.1 ppg), who has been suspended indefinitely from the squad for a violation of team policy. Sonia Chase (McDonogh) has scored a combined 35 points in her past two games for Maryland, which has used seven starting lineups this season. Terps coach Chris Weller needs two victories for 400. This is the first meeting between the two teams. Iona is 0-4 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. Maryland has a 4-1 all-time record against opponents from the MAAC.

UMBC WOMEN (6-5, 2-0) at TOWSON STATE (4-8, 3-0)

Site: Towson Center

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: The Retrievers are riding a four-game winning streak, and the Tigers have won three straight. Towson State, which began the season with six losses, has won four of six since Trinette Tucker -- a transfer from Fairfield -- joined the team after the first semester. Tucker, a sophomore forward, is averaging 21.2 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.2 assists. Freshman G LaTonya Joyner (13.5 ppg) and junior F Tanya Belair (12.5 ppg, 8.9 rpg) also are averaging in double figures in points for Towson. The Retrievers are paced by senior C Eunice French (12.4 ppg, 12.0 rpg) and sophomore G Tori Moten (10.8 ppg). UMBC, which has been sparked by strong defense, is allowing 55 ppg. The teams split two games last season, although Towson State leads the overall series, 25-6.
