Season and home opener against what appears to be the top team in the MAAC.

Will be a tough game to start the season.

Saw this on the Iona forum. Not sure how in depth this mid major poll is, but preseason #14 is pretty darn good.

I like the recognition. 

 

Worth noting..though..that Rowley was not the leading rebounder last year. Both Stire and Cremo had higher numbers.

2 America East teams and the MAAC only gets an "others considered" with Iona. I thought LCC fans talk about the superior MAAC?

We'll see on the 10th.  I'm sure it's on their bulletin board.

I just bought 4 additional tickets (to my 4 season tix) a few days ago and I'll say it looked light on the site. Section 200 was pretty full, just random seats available, nothing together except in the back, but 150 and 250 were fairly empty. No problem getting 4 seats together real close.

I didn't look in the gray or on the other side, but let's just say I hope the sales pick up as game day approaches. Iona is a great home game.

I hope sales pick up. Looks like tons still available on the site with under a week to go.

All the elements are there for strong attendance...

  • Season opener
  • Home opener
  • What looks to be one of the better UA MBB teams we have had
  • 2 local kids starting
  • Strong opponent, preseason #1 in the MAAC
  • A LCC Rival with that dumpster fire on the road

Pomeroy is a bit more optimistic about our chances. Has us favored by 5. A 67% favorite.

LMAO - goto the 5:50 mark of the video/audio above

 

"I think it's Important that I am a very calming influence on our team on Friday night. I don't think that we as coaches realize how much of an impact we have on how our guys play and respond based on our actions on the sidelines. So I need to stay composed and make sure our team is composed"

 

Shot thrown at the clown at LCC and his ability to get T's in an exhibition game? I love it!

He started to mentioned that the team scored over 100 against a higher level team, then backtracked and said that it was a lot of points. Coaches aren't supposed to comment on specifics from the secret scrimmages, and he didn't say much more than that - but I think it is a good sign. Considering the offensive ability of our team, combined with the style that Iona plays - it should be a great game to watch,
