Conference Tournament Previews: MAAC

Posted on: March 6, 2009 3:45 pm
 

I am going to preview every single conference tournament one by one. Instead of what I initially started I am going to do them all on separate blog entries because I feel like this will give everyone a chance to discuss these conference tournaments. It will give them a home where everyone can join in and post their thoughts. Please comment.

First Round: March 6th
#8 Loyola vs. #9 Canisius
#7 Iona vs. #10 Marist

Quarterfinals: March 7
#8/9 vs. #1 Siena
#4 Manhattan vs. #5 Fairfield
#3 Rider vs. #6 St. Peters
#7/10 vs. #2 Niagara

Semifinals: March 8

Championship: March 9

 

Prediction: Siena is the overwhelming favorite to win the MAAC. If the Saints fail to do so then they will likely be playing in the NIT, which is unfortunate for a team that is clearly one of the nation's best mid majors. Niagara has a win over Siena and a pretty good team, so don't be surprised of Niagara pulls a MAAC Championship game stunner. If you're a betting man put your money on Siena. They know how important this tournament is.

I will actually go with Niagara to win over Siena in the title game.  Niagara just beat Siena by 15 points recently, so they will not be intimidated.
