The Great Danes are looking to be the eighth team to win back-to-back America East titles and the first team since Maine in 1996 to go unbeaten in the conference regular season and win the championship.

The quarterfinals get started with No. 2 Hartford taking on No. 7 Binghamton at noon. The Hawks and Bearcats split the season series, as Binghamton defeated Hartford at the Events Center for the first time since 2005 in the America East opener.

In that game, the Retrievers topped the Catamounts 67-56 as a No. 7 seed and went on to claim their only America East title. The teams split the season series this year, with both teams winning on their home courts.
