Iona vs Rider Game Preview

On Friday night, the Iona Gaels will play a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game against the Rider Broncs at the Alumni Gymnasium. Follow this article for the best basketball analysis about this coming match.


Rider Analysis: Fresh of a dominant 104-62 road win

With a record of 10-16 overall and 7-8 within the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, the Rider Broncs are having a roller coaster of a season. Its latest highlight was the Broncs’ convincing win over Manhattan, where they scored 104 points to display their offensive brilliance. With an average of 73 points per match, Rider’s performance demonstrates what he can do when he is playing at his peak. Although their overall percentage of field goals made is only 43.4, they have strengths in their three-point shooting (44.1%) and free-throw shooting (74.5%). The Broncs have excellent rebounding skills; they have a good ranking with 38.2 rebounds per contest, demonstrating their aggressiveness and work ethic on the glass.


Iona Analysis: Looking to ascend in the Metro Atlantic Athletic standings

The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference’s 8-6 record and 13-12 overall record this season show that the Iona Gaels have both promise and room for growth. The Gaels’ inconsistent offensive performance was highlighted by their recent collapse versus Saint Peter’s University, where they managed just 53 points against a formidable defensive unit. Iona’s offensive rating, with an average of 73.1 points per game, puts them in the middle of the pack. Their three-point shooting percentage is a more reasonable 34.9%, and the team’s field goal percentage is 43.5%. They rank close to the bottom of the nation in terms of free-throw percentage (65.3%), which is a clear weakness that could be costly during close matches. Another field in which the Gaels struggle is rebounding, as they average 32.8 rebounds per match. This shows that they need to work on controlling the boards.
