Fairfield vs Iona (-3)
7 p.m. ET on ESPN
Another MAAC Tournament and another trip to the title game for Iona. This marks the sixth straight appearance in the MAAC final for the Gaels. Iona head coach Tim Cluess has taken his squad to the championship in seven of his eight seasons at the helm. (Iona received an at-large bid in the lone exception). Fairfield meanwhile will play in the conference tourney championship for the first time since 2013. The Gaels and Stags split the regular season series, with the Stags’ win coming via a wild 103-100 OT affair.
