Team preview: Niagara
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2003-04 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
After claiming two regular-season titles and rattling off five winning seasons in five years under Joe Mihalich, Niagara has established itself as a perennial contender in the MAAC.
With all five starters returning from a team that pushed Manhattan to the brink (and beyond) in an epic 82-81 double-overtime loss in a conference tournament semifinal game, barring injury or internal strife the Purple Eagles will be in the thick of things again this season.
