"Way Too Early: MAAC Primer for 2020-2021 "

Post by le »

A pretty decent analysis over on the Siena Board re the 2020-21 season. I would agree with NU being in the Top 4-5 next season. Monmouth and Manhattan could be a bit understated.

Siena Hoops:

1. Siena

Top players expected back - Jalen Pickett, Manny Camper, Don Carey, Gary Harris
New Additions - Dana Tate (Rhode Island), Aidan Carpenter, Colin Golson

2. St. Peter's

Top players expected back - KC Ndefo, D. Edert, D. Banks, M. Lee, F. Drame, H. Drame

3. Iona

Top players expected back - I. Washington, I. Ross, A. Gist
New Additions - Coach Rick Pitino, R. Brown, 5 new players just signed

4. Niagara

Top players expected back - M. Hammond, R. Solomon, G. Kuakumensah, Roberts
New Addition: K. Nwandu (Lemoyne)

5. Fairfield

Top players expected back - J. Cruz, T. Benning, C. Maidoh
New Additions: C. Green, T. Ngalakulondi (SBU) Nehemiah Benson, Jason Edokpayi (Freshmen)

6. Monmouth

Top players expected back - D. Hammond, R. Salnave (still deciding), G. Papas
New Addition: D. Toatley (Chattanooga)

7. Marist

Top players expected back - M. Cubbage, M. Herasme, J. Jones, T. Sagl, B. Bell, T. Saint-Furcy
New Addition: V. Enoh (Memphis)

8. Quinnipiac

Top players expected back - T. Williams, J. Rigoni, M. Balanc, S. Lewis, S. Pinkey, T. Pickron

9. Manhattan

Top players expected back - P. Paulicap (still deciding?) T. Green, S. Stewart, W. Williams, E. Buchanan, N. Mack

10. Rider

Top players expected back - C. Ings, A. Powell
New Addition: Corey McKeithan (Frosh) Rodney Henderson (JUCO)

11. Canisius

Top players expected back - M. Brandon, J. Henderson, S. Hitchon, J. Fritz
New Addition: M. Green (Morehead St)

Rider is in complete rebuild mold. If Salnave/Paulicap move on you'd have to adjust Monmouth/Manhattan. Rider will probably be better than 10th but they were completely gutted. If Niagara gets a little more size they could be tough. Really 4-11 in muddled.

Say to say Siena is the team to beat... SPU earned being second for now. Iona because of Pitino prowess (assuming he doesn't get a show case) will be in the top 3.
