2013 MAAC Tournament Predictions

Springfield, what a great town. My father went to college there. Actually, that's the only nice thing I can say about Hoop City, other than that is where basketball was invented. That said, here are my predictions for the 2013 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Basketball Tournament.

1st Round - March 8
#8 Marist vs. #9 Siena (7:30)
Pick: Marist

#7 Fairfield vs. #10 Saint Peter's (9:30)
Pick: Fairfield

Quarterfinals - March 9
#1 Niagara vs. #8 Marist (ESPN3, 2:30)
Pick: Niagara

#4 Iona vs. #5 Canisius (ESPN3, 4:30)
Pick: Iona

#2 Rider vs. #7 Fairfield (ESPN3, 7:30)
Pick: Fairfield

#3 Loyola (MD) vs. #6 Manhattan (ESPN3, 9:30)
Pick: Loyola

Semifinals - March 10
#1 Niagara vs. #4 Iona (ESPN3, 2:00)
Pick: Iona

#3 Loyola vs. #7 Fairfield(ESPN3, 4:30)
Pick: Fairfield

Final - March 11
#4 Iona vs. #7 Fairfield (ESPN2, 9:00)
I've had Iona get this far based on their awesome offense, while I've had Fairfield get this far based on their really good defense. We all know how Iona's offense can get cold so I like the Stags to survive and advance.
Pick: Fairfield
