The weather will not be a consideration when three MAAC teams open the 2015 season this weekend. First to play in the new campaign will be the Niagara Purple Eagles, with a pair of games Friday indoors at the Cleveland State Dome Tournament. The Purps will play the host Vikings and Toledo beginning at 3:30. They will then on Saturday face off against Robert Morris and Bowling Green.
Canisius will be playing in the same CSU Tournament, not beginning until Saturday when they play Cleveland State and Bucknell. The Griffs will have a pair of games on Sunday, vs. Toledo and Bowling Green.
Quinnipiac will also be indoors to begin the new season. The Bobcats will play intra state rival Sacred Heart on Saturday evening in Danbury, CT.
