NU has to bring it's "A" game tonight. I think Iona will be a good game with Iona the favorite.

I see the game time has been moved up to 5:30pm.
Neither team has played each other this season.
Love to beat Pitino!

For the first 10 minutes, Iona looks bigger, stronger and better. Traore enters the game and immediately scores and old fashioned three. He looks fluid . Very surprised. He will have a major impact in future years. Hammond still can not buy a shot. What has happened to his game?

Iona is good and well coached.

They are also bigger. Hey, everyone is bigger!

Could be a long night for the Eagles.

Iona is just better and while we looked to close half down 12, we're down 18, 43-25.
Notice Touba on the court, our 6-11 freshman. He has 5 points in 6 minutes and 2 fouls.
Hammond looks lost. he and Roberts 3 attempts haven't been close.
Nwandu needs to penetrate plus Cintron to make this respectable

Iona's Ross and another redshirt senior are 24 years old.
I was already out of the Army and at an investment bank in NYC at 24!

A 24 year old kid today paying with boys. Like having a 19 year old trans playing HS women’s
sports! How many colleges did they go to? Will they even get a degree from Iona?

Assume that was a rhetorical question!
I sent a message to my NY Post sports writer last night suggesting Iona might prevail on the court I'd love to compare GPA's.
He could only not reply to that message.
