Iona comes into the conference tournament as the one seed, but will have plenty of work in front of them to solidify a NCAA Tournament spot. Iona defeated Rider by scores of 80-54 and 67-61 this season. Iona is the better team in this matchup and has the advantage in most areas, so I like them to cruise to a win here.
