Play on: (15-11) Iona (711) over (16-11) Fairfield @ 7:00 Eastern
This season the Stags have had booked a streaking personality. In December they won 6 straight, January they went on a downer dropping 5 in a row. Further, in late January and early February, Fairfield with a 6-1 run. They are coming off a blistering 74-52 win over Siena. Back in January the Stags defeated the Gaels 84-73.
Iona’s best run this season started in late December and ended in January with an 8-1 streak. Since January 31st the Gaels have lost 4 of the last 5, last time out losing a heart breaking 74-73 game to improved Manhattan in New York. In fact, each of those loses were very winnable games. Iona has won 4 of the last 5 SU in the series. And, although, the Stags appear to the edge with a more balanced attack and the superior defense on their home floor, prefer Iona who is about to turn it around with a effective performance as the road team is 4-1 ATS in the recent battles. Good Luck.
