The 2010 MAAC season begins this Saturday with Canisius at Niagara and St. Peter's at Rider. I will be at Niagara University for that doubleheader.
I think this season is shaping up to be very competitive, first with the battle to gain a spot in the top four to qualify for the tournament, then for the Championship itself. Canisius, Fairfield, Niagara, Manhattan, and Iona seem to me to have the upper hand, but there could be surprises. From this point on the play should be intense.
