Oh what a sharp play this is going to be! This is the only nationally televised game on Friday night in college hoops, and it is going to feature a 20-9 team that is 11-5 in its own conference play going against a 15-13 team that is just 9-7 in conference. The Gaels are going to be favored by an incredibly tiny margin, and the whole world is going to take the points with the Greyhounds. Fortunately, if you’re reading this you’ll be better informed. Iona has six losses since January 31st, and they have come by a grand total of 11 points. All of those games could have flipped the other way, and for argument’s sake, had they done so, this would be a 21-7 team that would, for the second straight season, be clamoring for an at large bid into the NCAA Tournament. Make no mistake about it; we think Iona is the best team in the Metro Atlantic, and we think that this team could go on to win the MAAC, be a 16 seed, and match up well against a team like Miami or Florida. Loyola simply isn’t going to match up with the team that it beat in the MAAC Final last year. The Gaels have good memories, and they already have a win in Baltimore to show for their work this year. This will be the easiest play you’ll make between now and the dance.
