Last time out, Iona visited the Manhattan Jaspers and earned an 84-76 overtime win. This was a topsy turvy game that saw the Gaels lead by 11 at halftime and looked they were going to cruise to the win. Manhattan had other ideas and ended up erasing that deficit and forcing the extra five minutes. The Gaels were impressive in overtime and avoided a bad defeat. Iowa led by as many as 15 points, never trailed, and could not cover the -14.0-point spread.

Siena hosted the Fairfield Stags and suffered a shocking 62-52 defeat. This was an ugly game that saw the Saints build a five-point lead at halftime. Siena maintained that lead for the first 10 minutes of the second half, but then it all turned upside down. Fairfield went on a big run to end the game and the unexpected win. Siena led by as many as 12 points, trailed by as much as 10, and lost outright as -4.5-point home favorites.
