MAAC Monday: Rider’s struggles
By Jaden Daly (@jadendaly) and Vincent Simone (@VTSimone)

With two more weeks left in the regular season, the stretch drive rolls on in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, and MAAC Monday heats up in lockstep as well. In this week's edition, a former conference leader that has sputtered as of late will be profiled more closely in the team spotlight, hoping to get a clearer sense of what has gone on in recent weeks, before giving way to an updated set of stat leaders and power rankings. Without any further ado, the ball bounces across the Hudson River and into New Jersey:

Had the MAAC regular season ended two weeks ago, Rider would once again have earned the No. 1 seed in the upcoming conference tournament for a second time in three seasons, carrying with it an automatic berth to the National Invitation Tournament and a renewed sense of momentum for Lawrenceville to experience March Madness for the first time since emigrating from the Northeast Conference nearly a quarter-century ago.

Things seemed to be going well for Kevin Baggett and the Broncs. Behind a quartet of 1,000-point scorers and boasting perhaps the most talented roster in the league on paper, all the pieces seemed to be falling into place. Dimencio Vaughn returned to the lethal form that made him a first team all-MAAC selection, Tyere Marshall continued to further evolve into one of the conference’s best forwards, Frederick Scott was a mismatch and X-factor no opponent was able to solve, and senior point guard Stevie Jordan appeared to be enjoying the game and himself at the same time.

What happened since then, you ask? Rider has dropped three of its last four, including a pair of games this past weekend — a heartbreaking one-point setback to Iona Friday and a more decisive 19-point defeat at Saint Peter’s on Sunday — to sit 9-8 in league play, three games behind the aforementioned Peacocks with a promising freight train of momentum having been temporarily derailed.
