The Massachusetts Minutemen have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road.

The teams split their matchups last year, with GMU winning the first 72-62 on the road and the Minutemen taking the second 83-80.
The Duquesne Dukes typically have all the answers at home, but this past Saturday UMass proved too difficult a challenge. UMass was able to grind out a solid win over Duquesne, winning 87-79. UMass' guard RJ Luis looked sharp as he had 31 points in addition to five boards.
Meanwhile, the Patriots were close but no cigar on Sunday as they fell 79-76 to the Saint Joseph's Hawks. Forward Josh Oduro put forth a good effort for the losing side as he posted a double-double on 17 points and 12 rebounds along with seven assists.
