The Anchormen stand at 6-1 in conference play and are currently locked into a tie for first place with Eastern Connecticut.

 

Winners of seven consecutive contests, Head Coach Bob Walsh's Anchormen are ranked No. 21 in the latest D3Hoops.com Top 25 poll and currently own the nation's third-ranked scoring defense, allowing just 55.1 points per game.

 

Junior guard Nyheem Sanders leads the team in scoring with 11.3 points per game, while senior guard Tahrike Carter has corralled a team-high 6.9 rebounds per game to go along with 10.7 points and a team-high 3.6 assists per game. Sophomore forward Chris Burton (left) leads the Little East with 2.3 steals per game, while chipping in with 9.4 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.6 blocked shots per game.
