Iona has developed into one of the feel-good stories of the year, going a perfect 5-0 and beating Iowa State at their own tournament. They're led by the dynamic backcourt duo of Ricky Soliver and Steve Burtt, the latter of which leads the Mid-Majority in scoring with 26.6 PPG. Rider is 2-3, but have shown flashes of the solid team conference followers are predicting them to be: they nearly took out Bucknell on their home floor, and feature a long and lanky 6'8" sophomore named Jason Thompson who has shown gamebreaking capabilities in his young career. So buy some corn for popping and turn the lights way down low, there's a MAAC game on tonight.
