When Iona lost three of four in the wraparound week between 2005 and 2006, there was no mystery why they were tanking. Sure, the Gaels have a great backcourt, but they were being murdered inside. After spending a couple weeks on the back of an egg nog carton, their quint-captain and sturdy post presence is back.
Wachsmann has turned it back around in recent days, notching two double-doubles in three games (the other was a 12-and-11 performance against Saint Peter's
), and he's doing a lot of what he's doing in the picture: using his ass to move people away from the basket. After Iona's win against previously resurgent Fairfield, the Gaels are 6-1, just a shade back of archrivals Manhattan in the MAAC.
