The Inferno hasn't played since a Dec. 10 setback at Lakeland University after snow postponed a home contest with Benedictine University to Jan. 5.

Alverno (2-6, 2-2 Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference) closes out its nonconference slate Thursday at UW-Superior before hosting Edgewood on New Year's Eve in NACC play.

The Yellowjackets (8-3) have rattled off seven straight wins as they began Upper Midwest Athletic Conference play with a 5-0 record including an 86-60 victory over Martin Luther College on Dec. 17.

The Eagles (0-9, 0-4 NACC) are still seeking their first win after a rough start to the season. Edgewood lost a pair of games at the Daytona Beach Shootout on Dec. 20-21 including its closest margin in the final game, 51-41 against Cabrini College.

UW-Superior has won the last three meetings to go up 3-1 in the all-time series, while Edgewood leads 16-8 although Alverno has won the last two contests and six of the last nine.

Live video broadcasts and live stats are available for both games with links available on athletics.alverno.edu.
