Siena, you almost made me look smart. You got the the championship game and gave it a good fight. So much so that you had me believing in you. And then you break my heart. Darn you Siena. Darn you. Niagara won the MAAC Championship, 83-79 Monday night to capture the automatic bid to the NCAA’s. This will be their second trip to the “Big Dance” in three years.
The Purple Eagles were lead by Tyrone Lewis who scored 24 points, Lorenzo Miles who scored 21 points, and Clif Brown who had 14 points and 16 rebounds. This was their 11th straight win and first over Siena for this year; Siena beat Niagara twice in conference play. The game had 6 ties and 15 lead changes.
The All-Tournament team were Lorenzo Miles (Niagara), Clif Brown (Niagara), Kenny Hasbrouck (Siena), Michael Haddix (Siena), and Jared Jordan (Marist). Tyrone Lewis was the tournament MVP.
Lorenzo Miles, you graced your presence in our All-MAAC Hottie Team and you’re going to be the MVP. Congratulations good looking.
