College Basketball Preseason: MAAC Preview for 2012-13

The MAAC had a very successful 2011-12 season, sending four teams to the postseason: Loyola and Iona to the NCAA tournament, and Manhattan and Fairfield to the CIT.

Iona spent the entire season as the lone favorite to win the conference, and it did in the regular season, by two games over Loyola.

In the 2012-13 season, the conference will be a little more balanced.

Loyola, which won the conference tournament last year, has the best chance to walk away with the title, but Manhattan will surely give the Greyhounds a good fight, and Iona is not far behind those two. Siena seems to be just a slight step behind the Gaels, and even Marist, Niagara and Canisius could pull off a few surprises.

This is the deepest the MAAC has been in a number of years.

Here is a 2012-13 season preview for the MAAC with team-by-team breakdowns, preseason all-conference awards and predictions for how the final standings will shape up.
