We have MAACtion starting today!
Defending champion Iona won the first ever MAAC tournament in 1982. The Gaels have won ten overall, twice the amount of the next closest teams (Manhattan and Siena). However, despite 12 NCAA tournament appearances, Iona has only won a single NCAA tournament game. The Gaels won two of those previous ten MAAC titles in the past two seasons.
Overall, MAAC teams have a combined 16-50 record in the NCAA tournament. Canisius has the most tournament wins with six, and Siena had the most recent win in 2009. Quinnipiac is the only team in the league to never make the dance. Let’s take a look at this year’s tournament to see which MAAC team will make it on to your bracket.
