Albany, whose 9-0 start in conference is no fluke, has won 12 of their last 13 games, their only loss being a game at Niagara where head coach Will Brown said his team’s flu symptoms helped create the Great Danes’ worst performance to date.
What Happened Last Week: Yale swept Columbia and Cornell on the road, improving to 4-0. Harvard recovered from last week’s upset with wins at Princeton and Penn, keeping pace at 3-1. Princeton is in the mix at 2-1, as are Cornell and Columbia at 2-2, but the Ivy League still looks like a two-team race.
We are one month away from the end of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference regular season, so as Siena head coach Jimmy Patsos says, ‘get your all MAAC passes.’ After a hard fought, literally at times, weekend of conference play, Iona leads the league by a game, with Rider a game behind.
Manhattan coach Steve Masiello never hides the fact that he’s a Rick Pitino disciple through and through.

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.
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.
