    Yes, we have a BKC thread but didn't want this to get buried.

    The Iona Gaels are the new No. 1 team in the US of A.

    Iona beat Rider
    Rider beat Drexel
    Drexel beat Syracuse
    Syracuse beat Marquette
    Marquette beat Duke
    Duke beat Clemson
    Clemson beat Florida State
    Florida State beat Florida

    Go Gaels!

    With enough indirects, I had a win over John McEnroe.

    Rider beat Drexel? Awesome! That'll hurt the Dragons' at-large chances.

    Don't be so sure, Oz. They've hit the skids in recent weeks. Fourth place in the CAA isn't going to cut it.

    I've got faith in them, for some reason. KU needs to lose to someone in the first round, you know.

    Jeff Ruland will be pleased to hear that -- when he gets off the sauce

    One of the many reasons Rider lost to Iona was that their lone senior (who is also their only true point guard with much experience) was suspended for that game for disciplinary reasons.

    Does this mean Iona gets to play in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl?

    But if the Gaels can win four games in four days in the MAAC tournament they can earn an automatic NCAA bid .. with 5 or 6 wins
