MAAC Tourney Time

Well the most exciting time of the year is here. Its March Madness time. And it starts with the low level conference tourneys. And mine and your favorite Conference starts tonight. The MAAC. Its better then the other MAC. Which is filled with garbage. But enough with putting down other conferences.

But my beloved Golden Griffins kick things off against Loyola today. The Griffins are used to playing in the first round of the MAAC tourney, having been terrible for years. So the 9th placed Griffins (10-19) (4-14 in conference) plays the 8th placed Loyola Greyhounds (12-19) (7-11 in the MAAC)

They split the season series so it should be a even matchup. When they tip things off at 730 in Albany.

I'm sorry I haven't much Griff coverage this year, they are just a tough team to cover. They aren't exciting, and just ugly to watch. But they have improved from last year, a little bit. They are still terrible in the conference. Which is getting tougher. Because kids realize they can play anywhere these days and they will be noticed. So why not stay close to home. But next year should be a better year.

While former coach Mike Mcdonald takes Medaille to a division title. And a tournament bid. Medaille? Its a building with a parking lot, how do they field a basketball team, let alone a decent one? Grrr.

Niagara has a good shot at winning the tourney this year, if they can get past Siena, who is playing at home and who is very good. But its Niagara, so I hope anyone else wins the conference. Even those Iona Bastards.


The Canisius women on the other hand are pretty good. With the MAAC coach of the year Terry Zeh. They finished 22-7 and 2nd in the conference, to the annual power Marist. But as we speak, they are playing the terrible Niagara Purple Eagles. And its a half hour into the game and are probably up by 40. Close its 38-14. The Griffs are looking to take home a title, with Marie Warner leading the way.


But people its March Madness, its fun times ahead.
