Iona came into this game as one of the few teams that wanted to see if Florida Gulf Coast would accept their bait of playing an up- and-down game.
Cornell and Siena may both be mid-majors from upstate New York hoping to return to their heights of five years ago, but their 2014-15 seasons could hardly be more different. The Saints entered with high expectations, picked second in the MAAC after winning last year’s College Basketball Invitational, but they struggled to a 3-6 start; […]
