Rider-Niagara tips off MAAC's ESPN schedule

Rider's Jan. 7 game at Niagara is the first of of seven MAAC games to be aired on ESPNU, the MAAC and ESPN announced Thursday. The game tips at 9 p.m. in Lewiston.

Siena plays at Saint Peter's on Jan. 21, also in a made-for-TV 9 p.m. tip. Fairfield and Iona will square off on ESPNU Feb. 4 in Bridgeport, also at 9.

On Friday, Feb. 25, ESPN2 will selected a wildcard game and ESPNU will air an additional game. Games scheduled that day are Manhattan at Canisius, Siena at Fairfield, Iona at Saint Peter's, Loyola at Niagara and Rider at Marist. ... So you can put a good bit of money on Siena-Fairfield -- a rematch of last year's overtime thriller of a MAAC title game -- to be one of the games selected.

ESPNU will broadcast three women's-men's doubleheaders: The Loyola and Fairfield women and men on Jan. 14 in Baltimore; the Canisius-Manhattan women's game and Canisius-Niagara men's games on Jan. 28 in Buffalo, and the Iona-Marist women's game and Iona-Siena men's game Feb. 11 in New Rochelle.

The conference is moving the women's tournament title game, usually played Sunday afternoon, to Monday. The game will be televised on ESPNU for the first time. The men's title game will be played in its usual Monday night spot, at 7 p.m. on either ESPN or ESPN2.
