StatSheet projects Iona to make the NCAA Tournament as a 15 seed. The Gaels are currently on track for an automatic bid and will need it to retain the invite as they're #98 in the StatSheet StatRank. They have a 12-6 overall record and a 6-1 record in the MAAC.
Over the last four games, Iona excelled with wins against Fairfield, Canisius, Marist, and Manhattan.
Iona has little experience against top competition, with an 0-3 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes an 0-2 record against the RPI Top 50 and no record against AP ranked teams. While the Gaels have no quality wins, they're dinged by three bad losses including RPI #275 St. Peter's, RPI #106 UIC, and RPI #257 Quinnipiac.
