Since we split with QU and won by more than loss, NU would get 5 seed with win v CC Friday evening.
That's my take and not official.
Need bus loads from campus at the game!

THE LATEST AS OF TODAY:

Niagara (9-10): Can finish as No. 5, 6, 7, or 8 seed. Can clinch first-round bye with a win Friday at Canisius.

There are three teams in play for the #5 seed (NU, IC and QU). The Griffs have clinched the #10 seed and have practically nothing to play for on Friday other than pride. Marist is the 11th seed.

Halfway right. After the split with QU, next tiebreak is record against the top team in the league (and then second, then third, etc.). Niagara is 1-1 against both Siena and Saint Peter's while QU is 0-2 against both, so Niagara will finish fifth with a win.

If nothing else, the dustup between Monmouth and Siena after last nights games should make things interesting. Salnave was involved in the pushing and shoving. He's the same player that body slammed Towns at our place after it was apparent they were going to lose.

Also, the MAAC has put some precautions in place for the tournament to guard against the spread of the coronavirus. If you are planning on attending, you might want to take a look. Stuff to do with extra hand sanitizers/hand washing stuff but I didn't read it all.
