The MAAC announced its All-Conference teams as well as All-Rookie team during the final coaches conference call of the season on Monday afternoon.
Iona completed its perfect home slate with an energizing 79-75 win over Manhattan on Senior Night. The Gaels got a lift from the return of junior Isaiah Williams, who missed 12 games with a right foot injury. Williams contributed 12 points off the bench in his return.
This is a quick wrap up of some things I’ve been meaning to write about from around the MAAC, since I haven’t gotten a chance to because Vincent and Ryan Restivo have been killing it on the beat. For more of their work check out the MAAC page.
This game deserves more than three thoughts. Iona and Manhattan battled for 40 minutes doing what each of them do best. In the end though A.J. English just did it a little bit better.
Reaching over .500 for the first time this season at 11-10 with an impressive 87-76 victory at Monmouth, you would think that Steve Masiello’s Manhattan Jaspers have started to click.
Manhattan coach Steve Masiello never hides the fact that he’s a Rick Pitino disciple through and through. He played for Pitino at Kentucky, assisted with him at Louisville, and now much of the success he’s had in Riverdale is employing the same style of coming after opponents with pressure and traps and anything else to […]
The battle of the two most penalized teams in the MAAC certainly lived up to the billing. After 40 minutes full of 46 fouls, 38 turnovers, 20 steals, and 63 combined free throw attempts, it was the Manhattan Jaspers squeaked away from Siena in the final minutes to come away with an 87-79 victory.
We have plenty of coverage from Quinnipiac’s 73-59 victory over Manhattan on Friday night. Start with Ray Curren’s recap, to Drame’s big dunk and more. Here is a photo gallery from the Bobcats win that moves them to even in MAAC play through 10 games.
For all intents and purposes, the game was over. Quinnipiac led by double digits and time was not only a factor, it precluded a Manhattan comeback with only 90 seconds left. But as Manhattan sharpshooter Shane Richards ran off screens, Zaid Hearst was still with him every step of the way, just as he had […]
In perhaps the meta moment of the wacky 2014-15 MAAC season thus far, Manhattan coach Steve Masiello perhaps explained perfectly why he shouldn’t be too angry after a tough 82-79 overtime loss to Rider Sunday at Draddy Gym … while being extremely angry about a home loss that would have seen his Jaspers (8-9, 5-3) […]
