MAAC Announces Preseason Poll

The MAAC announced their preseason poll today during MAAC Media Day festivities in Springfield, Massachusetts at the Basketball Hall of Fame. Siena found themselves ranked 6th, their lowest preseason ranking since the 2005-06 season. That season, the first by former head coach Fran McCaffrey, the Saints were picked to finish last but finished a surprise 15-13.

Fairfield, the defending MAAC regular season champion, holds the number 2 spot behind an Iona team that is led by preseason MAAC Player of the Year ¬†Mike Glover.
