Re: Canisius v Niagara Fri, 2/28 & Sat, 2/29 @ Gallagher, Game Times TBD

Notice how the standings have been suddenly reversed in the last 2 days . Richard J. Ensor in his infinite wisdom has declared that the standings should be based on number of wins, not based on winning percentage ? So in essence, the MAAC is penalizing teams that were forced to cancel games due to ...

Re: NU 64, Siena 62 Final

Certainly the difference was that Siena went 1-14 from 3 point land. One more in and it could have likely been a loss. Was the NU defense the reason for it or was Siena just cold on open 3's? Now if Niagara can win again tomorrow they will have a legitimate shot at a top 3 position for the playoffs ...

Re: Hockey: Next up: Niagara (2-8-3) at Mercyhurst Feb 19 (Fri) 7 PM & Feb 20 (Sat) 7 PM at Dwyer

These games are must wins if Niagara wants a chance to host a single elimination playoff game. That may not even be possible though with Niagara 8 points behind 4th place RIT. The playoff format has been announced: http://www.atlantichockeyonline.com/news/2021/2/19/mens-ice-hockey-atlantic-hockey-to...

Re: Hockey: Next up Canisius 2/5 : POSTPONED !

Hopefully Atlantic Hockey starts putting together the schedule on a weekly basis matching teams capable of playing games rather than relying on the original schedule. No Niagara games scheduled next week and if they do play the following week against Mercyhurst it will be about 40 days between games...

Re: SAT: Niagara 83, Monmouth 74

I think I found the 13 game minimum. It is a 13 game minimum to qualify for the NCAA tournament. While a team may play in their conference championships they cannot qualify for the NCAA unless they play 13 games. That being said they likely would qualify because they would have to play 4 conference ...

Re: SAT: Niagara 83, Monmouth 74

All it takes is one team to not play 20 games to set that in motion. Given that Iona needs another 16 to play and is scheduled to play less than that it is most likely to happen. Iona cannot play Niagara on it's original scheduled dates as they will now play Canisius those days. It may not even be p...

Re: Today at 4 pm, Monmouth (8-4) vs Niagara (6-9), ESPN3

Need more W's to gain 5 spot and avoid first round game. Looking at the remaining schedule it certainly looks difficult to climb to 5th. The top 2 teams twice and Canisius twice. Probably 5 wins would be needed or at least 4 if 2 of those come against whomever ends up in first or second to help wit...

Re: Today at 4 pm, Monmouth (8-4) vs Niagara (6-9), ESPN3

Nice solid win 83-74. Cintron with a breakout game 22 points 8-8 shooting 6-7 free throws with the only miss in the last minute on his last attempt and 8 rebounds to go along with his 4 fouls. Kind of like a Gordie Howe hattrick.

Re: B-Ball: NU (5-7) v Quinnipiac (3-5) today at 4, ESPN+

Kuakumensah had an excellent game. Perfect shooting 4-4 and 1-1 free throw plus 9 rebounds with 3 blocks and 3 steals. Really bad team shooting again but Niagara was better than Quinnipiac in all 3 shooting percentages and led in rebounds 47-38.

Re: Game 2 : 4:00 PM -Niagara at Manhattan-ESPN+

A bigger concern is their 2 point shooting percentage which is just 44.6% on the season. They shoot only 32.3% from 3 point land but if you factor in the additional point gained they are better off shooting the 3's. They only took 13 3 point shots that game. In the entire 347 team Division 1 only 1 ...
