The MAAC basketball preseason poll will be out June 1st. The Commish and the AD's have decided to change the scheduling to 18 conference games freeing up 2 non-conference games to be played against better opponents. No more home and away series with each school but each school will have 9 home games and 9 away games. They are breaking it down to three groups. Group A teams #1-4/group B #5-7/group C #8-11. Group A must play teams in the top 250 winning pct in college BB and group B top 300 in winning pct with their free games. Group C has no restrictions. They are attempting to raise the profile of the MAAC to someday be a 2 bid league for the post season. They feel this will raise the national RPI for the conference.... Oh yea Commish Ensor's contract was extended to June 2020.
