Welcome back to the Trentonian's Full-Court Press blog. Yes, we're still alive, and with the 2015-16 season rapidly approaching, it's time to fire up the old blog for another season. Check back here throughout the year for updates on all things Rider and Princeton, including coverage of both the MAAC and Ivy League. Feel free to drop me a line on twitter @kj_franko ( or email

Good job by the MAAC hosting an academic fair today at the arena. Went over there to check it out, and there's a lot of recruiting going on.

The fair got me thinking about MAACademics, so I checked out the U.S. News & World Report rankings to see where they put each MAAC school.

Nine of the 10 schools are listed in the Universities with Masters division, while Siena is ranked separately as a liberal arts college. The rankings are done by region, so the nine schools with masters programs are in the North region. MAAC schools are very well represented at the top with two schools in the top four and five in the top 21.

U.S. News ranks them as follows:

3. Loyola
4. Fairfield
15. Marist
17. Manhattan
21. Casnisius
30. Iona
30. Rider
54. Niagara
Third tier (no ranking): Saint Peter's
(Siena is ranked No. 121 in the liberal arts colleges rankings)

Beagle, I'll check on Hartwick. Indeed, hard to believe FU is ranked that high given that they gave me a degree.
