The two teams will meet for the second time this season. ECSU won the first matchup, 86-58, on Dec. 13, marking Davis’ first win over a Curtis-led team. He also was a Shaw assistant under Curtis.

Both St. Augustine’s teams will play Lincoln (Pa.) on Tuesday. The Lady Falcons play at 12:10 p.m., while the men go at it at 6:40 p.m. A win by the Falcons would set up a third rematch with Shaw Wednesday night at 8:50.
Chowan vs. Johnson C. Smith men is the second Monday night game at 8.
