    Iona has won the MAAC Tourney in each of the last four seasons; the best team in the conference and the most ‘clutch’ team down the stretch, during crunch time of tight games in tourney play.  This year, however, the Gaels have been nothing but a disappointment.  The preseason conference favorite finished with the #7 seed; just 9-11 in MAAC play and 11-16 overall.  Unlike recent seasons, this version of the Gaels has NOT been winning the tight games.  They’ve lost three straight overall heading into tourney action, and each of their last four defeats has come by three points or less, or in OT; a team that went 3-8 SU in games decided by less than five points or in OT this season.

    Iona throttled Canisius by 21 in Buffalo when these two teams met less than two weeks ago.  The Gaels shot 64% from the floor in that contest; Canisius was under 40% from the floor.  I’m not expecting a repeat of that showing today, to put it mildly.  The Griffs haven’t lost by more than one point since that defeat, stepping up down the stretch.  And Canisius has hung tough repeatedly away from home.  They’ve won twice in their last five road tilts, and the three losses have come by a COMBINED six points.  Expect a down-to-the-wire battle here.  Take Canisius.
