What to Know
After three games on the road, the Iona Gaels are heading back home. The Gaels and the Monmouth Hawks will face off in an MAAC battle at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at Hynes Athletics Center. Iona is out to keep their nine-game home win streak alive.
Iona was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap this past Friday as they fell 70-64 to the Siena Saints.
Meanwhile, Monmouth beat the Manhattan Jaspers 75-65 this past Friday.
Iona is the favorite in this one, with an expected 8.5-point margin of victory. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the squad has let down bettors in their past four games.
Iona got away with an 86-85 win in the teams' previous meeting last month. Will they repeat their success, or do the Hawks have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.
