The Morning Dish – Thursday, February 8, 2018

by - Published February 8, 2018 in The Morning Dish

St. John’s and St. Bonaventure. What a night it was Wednesday for a pair of Catholic schools in New York on the college basketball scene.

Also, if anyone has been lulled into thinking there are three teams this season far and away above everyone else? Wednesday night provided the reality check.

It became easy to forget throughout January as St. John’s racked up one loss or another in the rugged Big East that the Johnnies were a more-than competent team in November and December, one that looked like it would be in contention for an NCAA Tournament bid. … Continue Reading

The Morning Dish – Sunday, February 4, 2018

by - Published February 4, 2018 in The Morning Dish

Funny things happen in college basketball in late January and early February, and Saturday was a perfect example of as much.

Saturday was marked by upsets and near-upsets, and we’re talking real upsets, not a team in the back half of the top 25 on its home court defeating a top-10 team. A number of developments of the day came almost out of nowhere and would almost be too wild to be believed, if they didn’t actually happen. … Continue Reading

Best Players No One Knows About – 2016-17 edition

by - Published November 11, 2016 in Columns

Rice hasn’t been a big factor in basketball for a long time. The school is known for its academics and baseball program, but the hardwood has been more of a challenge.    But there is finally some hope in Mike Rhoads’ third season at the helm, and that hope starts with Marcus Evans.

The sophomore guard was one of the best freshmen in the country last season. He led the Owls in scoring and was second in Conference USA in that category, and he produced the third-most points in a single season in Rice history. He also led the conference in steals, and got better as the season went along, posting higher scoring numbers in conference play then before it.

The Morning Dish – Saturday, February 14, 2015

by - Published February 14, 2015 in The Morning Dish

Iona and Manhattan have basically ruled the MAAC the last two years and carried the story. The last two championship games have been close ones between the two, they are nearby rivals, and there is immense respect for one another. In fact, last year, after Manhattan won the championship game, head coach Steve Masiello said he and his staff have tried to model their program after Iona.

Friday night was the latest installment of this rivalry. The two teams are a contrast in styles, with Iona being the team that can light up the scoreboard while Manhattan can slow down and stop a lot of offenses. While Iona shot over 52 percent from the field, including 11-18 from long range, Manhattan was able to hang in by forcing 21 turnovers. The game came down to the end, but it was Iona that escaped with a 70-67 win to remain two games up in the MAAC standings.
