There were 151 Division I basketball games played yesterday, as teams tried to avoid tonight’s Super Bowl — except if you’re most of the MAAC. Here is my takeaway from eight area games.
Iona closed out a victory over Saint Peter’s at home on Saturday night; however, the event to see was the mix up that took place after the buzzer sounded. Here is another angle of the brawl, following the end of the Gaels’ 68-61 win.
Iona played their customary game at Madison Square Garden following Duke’s victory over St. John’s in Mike Krzyzewski’s 1000th win Sunday afternoon and ran the Purple Eagles back onto the streets of New York, 87-64.
For a team like Iona, whose bench plays the 11th fewest minutes of any team in the country, losing any of the starters is akin to disaster.
Iona, Monmouth and Rider are atop the MAAC standings with a 6-2 record, but the conference race might be closer than you think.
A spectacular second half in which Iona junior A.J. English pocketed 18 points including four 3-pointers propelled the Gaels past Fairfield 74-58 Tuesday evening and into a tie with Monmouth for first place in the MAAC at 5-1.
We’re now six games into MAAC play. Monmouth is surprisingly tied with Iona atop the regular season standings at 5-1, but the tempo-free standings actually have a different team challenging the Gaels (though no one is really even close).
A wise man once said “It’s like déjà vu all over again.”
Iona, in cementing their status as MAAC favorite, dispatched Quinnipiac with an 81-73 victory on Tuesday night. The win avenges their worst loss in MAAC play in a long time and sends the Bobcats reeling, looking for answers as they start 0-4 in league play. Here are some thoughts on the only MAAC game of the […]
Plenty going on in the second MAAC weekend (first in a little bit though!) as teams dive fully into conference play. Just one team is undefeated and it isn’t the undisputed conference favorite, so here’s the latest on whose stock is up and down in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.
