CONFERENCE RACE HEATS UP: No teams remain unbeaten in CAA play after Campbell defeated Stony Brook in overtime on Sunday. However, the Seawolves remain in sole possession of first place at 5-1, half a game ahead of North Carolina A&T (4-1), who has won four in a row. Following the top two, Charleston, Drexel and William & Mary are in a three-way tie at 4-2, while Monmouth sits at 3-2. Additionally, Towson and Elon are 3-3, as more than half the league is .500 or better in CAA action.

THE WEEK AHEAD:  A light schedule for the week ahead features four games on Friday and seven on Sunday. N.C. A&T puts the longest active winning streak in the league on the line against a pair of in-state foes, visiting Campbell on Friday before hosting Elon on Sunday. In addition, Stony Brook and Drexel look to bounce back from setbacks in a matchup on Long Island on Sunday. Another one to keep your eye on Sunday is W&M hosting Monmouth in a rematch from earlier this season, which the Tribe won 70-66.

CLARK NAMED TO MID-MAJOR POTY WATCH LIST: Stony Brook graduate forward/center Khari Clark was named to the midseason watch list for the 2024 Becky Hammon Mid-Major Player of the Year Award by Her Hoop Stats. It marks the fourth consecutive season that a CAA student-athlete has made the midseason watch list.

NOTHING BUT NET: As of Monday, Jan. 22, Stony Brook remained in the top 100 of the NCAA NET Rankings at No. 76. In addition, seven more teams cracked the top 200. Charleston rose to No. 156, its highest this season. Monmouth (165), William & Mary (169) and N.C. A&T (174) followed, rounding out the top five CAA teams. Additionally, Towson (186), Drexel (191) and Delaware (192) remain among the top 200.
