No. 4 Iona and No. 6 Manhattan will square off in the MAAC men's basketball tournament championship on Sunday night.
The MAAC men's basketball tournament schedule is down to just one game. No. 4 Iona will take on No. 6 Manhattan at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN2 with a conference title and an automatic bid to the 2013 NCAA Tournament on the line. Both teams scored impressive wins to advance, with Manhattan having to win three straight to survive to Sunday at MassMutual Center in Springfield, Mass.
Iona notched the biggest upset so far, defeating top-seeded Niagara, 79-73, on Sunday. The conference isn't likely to send an at-large team to the NCAA Tournament, so the loss turned out to be a heartbreaker for a Purple Eagles squad that has earned just three bids to the Big Dance in program history.
