Morning Run — Game 7: Rider 74, Wisconsin-Milwaukee 60
Rider swept its stay in Puerto Vallarta to finish a four-game road trip 2-2 and improve to 4-3 overall. The Broncs have already surpassed last season's non-conference win total (three).
Nurideen Lindsey and Danny Stewart each finished with 11 points.
The schedule gets considerably tougher, beginning Thursday night when La Salle visits Alumni Gymnasium. The Explorers (3-1) snapped a 10-game losing streak against Villanova Sunday with a 77-74 win in overtime.
Following La Salle's visit, Rider travels to Drexel, plays two MAAC games — at Siena and at home to Fairfield — and finishes non-league play with trips to Princeton, Rutgers and Delaware.
November's closing up shop and conference play is right around the corner so here is a look at how the MAAC stacks up:
1. Loyola (5-1)
2. Canisius (3-1)
3. St. Peter's (3-2)
4. Rider (4-3)
5. Fairfield (3-3)
6. Iona (2-2)
7. Niagara (2-3)
8. Marist (2-4)
9. Siena (2-4)
10. Manhattan (1-3)
And a whip around from Sunday:
Clemson 59, Marist 44: Red Foxes still leave Old Spice Classic with something to show for it after win over Vanderbilt.
Seton Hall 76, St. Peter's 61: Peacocks started 3-0 but have lost two straight.
Maine 72, Siena 66: Some Saints fans think Mitch Buonaguro is firmly on the hot seat. Still early, but losses like this don't help his cause.
