Notes

  • Hartford was picked fourth by America East's head coaches after winning 17 games last season, its most since the 2007-08 season and second-most ever at the Division I level.
  • The Hawks made their first-ever postseason appearance last season, appearing in the CIT.
  • Head coach John Gallagher, who enters his fourth season as Hartford's head coach, received a contract extension through the 2017-18 season over the summer.
  • Gallagher's squad returns 10 letterswinners from last year, including nine of its top 10 scorers and 90.2 percent of its scoring output.
  • Junior forward Mark Nwakamma is one of America East's top players as he's just one of two returnees who earned first-team all-conference honors last year.
  • A preseason All-America East choice, Nwakamma ranked fifth among league leaders in scoring last year (14.7 ppg) and was even better against league foes, scoring a league-best 16.5 points per game in conference play and shooting 50.2 percent from the field.
  • Hartford opens up vs. Quinnipiac in the Connecticut 6 Classic on Nov. 9, then plays at Florida Gulf Coast on Nov. 12 at 7 a.m. on ESPN2 as part of ESPN's Season Tip-Off Marathon.
