For the first time in his tenure at Monmouth, King Rice ran into an unfamiliar problem that is all too familiar for Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference coaches.
The Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association announced the winners of their Division I basketball awards today and in general the voters, of which I’m one, seem to have done a credible job.
The All-Metropolitan Men’s Basketball ballots were due yesterday. I’m a big fan of transparency, so for that reason I’m posting my full ballot here.
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.
Iona head coach Tim Cluess has had plenty to smile about these last two days, even if it is in two different ways.
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.
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.
It is that time of year again. Coaches received their ballots for the top awards in the MAAC and the announcement of the winners will come on Monday. Now it’s time to preview what those results might be.
