Iona had plenty to be happy about on Sunday, as they broke the MAAC tournament record for three-pointers made in a game with 19 – it was previously 15 – and Isaiah Williams set the single-game record for three-pointers made with nine of his own.

Monmouth held off a late surge from Canisius Saturday afternoon to earn a 60-54 win over the Golden Griffins and move on to the MAAC semifinals Sunday afternoon. Justin Robinson proved his worth as an all-MAAC first team member, leading four Hawks in double figures with 16 points.
Monmouth used a 16 point game from sophomore Justin Robinson to carry themselves into the MAAC semifinals on Sunday against Iona. Check out the photo gallery from the Hawks victory over Canisius.
When the MAAC tournament gets underway in Albany this weekend, one team will face a challenge they haven’t encountered before.
