Iona vs. Manhattan Prediction

I’m on Iona here. There’s just nothing to be excited about with this Manhattan team. The Jaspers keep finding ways to get crushed left and right in conference play and while Iona hasn’t necessarily been at their best lately, I still think they’re good enough here to find a way to win this one convincingly. The Gaels are the more talented team and already beat Manhattan by double-digits this season. Give me the Gaels here.
