Yeah, the other two losses in the MAC were vs their likely top opponet for the NCAA bid in canisus and by a couple points in each game. No idea what happened the other night.
I dunno if i would calll them a disapointment, I follow Iona pretty closesly and we all knwe this team was not as good as some recent ones. They still will likely continue the streak of 20 win seasons however, And are at worse co-favorites for the MAAC championship. 110 RPI eve after that monmouth loss is still not bad and could easily get back in the top 100 before selection sunday.
My hope is we win out get a 3 seed or lose a couple and get a 6 and play Iona in round 1 or possibly 2. I see some sites predicting them as 15 seeds and that seems like a pretty tough 15 seed imo.
