The MAAC conference has had it's ups and downs this season, including Monmouth starting the year 0-12 before rallying and winning their way into the MAAC Championship game tonight at 9 pm against the top seed Iona Gaels and MAAC coach of the year Tim Cluess.

If the Iona Gaels are able to win tonight that would be four straight MAAC titles here in Albany. If King Rice and his Monmouth Hawks are able to upset Cluess and his Gaels they get an automatic bid to the Big Dance. Rice tells us about his time with the Hawks as well as his thoughts on the rest of the MAAC conference and Siena head coach Jamion Christian.
