ASA Women's Basketball will make their second trip to Maryland in as many days Thursday evening, as the Lady Avengers take on the #25 Harford Fighting Owls in a potential District C Finals preview. Tip-off for the matchup at the new APGFCU Arena is scheduled for 7:00 PM.

ASA (15-3) has won five consecutive games since the calendar switched to 2013, including a pair of victories over quality Division II opponents (#11 CCRI at home and #15 Monroe College on the road). The Lady Avengers won their last game, a 68-50 triumph over Baltimore City CC. Since 2009-10, ASA is 9-2 overall against Maryland opponents and 2-0 overall against Harford.

However, Harford (18-1) is in the midst of its best season since ASA joined the NJCAA and District C. The Fighting Owls have won ten straight games heading into tonight's contest behind a trio of sophomore playmakers.

Given the current standings and schedule alignment of the District C playoffs, ASA and Harford could very well find themselves playing for a trip to Nationals in the same arena in early March.
