Lower School Alumnus Masiello '91 wins 2nd straight MAAC title at Manhattan helm

Though it is a sad day for our collegiate Gael counterparts, who were the top seed in yesterday's Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) basketball final, Iona Prep was pleased with the performance of it's Lower School alumnus, Manhattan Jaspers coach and now, two-time defending MAAC Champion Steve Masiello '91.

With Monday night's 79-69 victory over Iona College, Masiello and the Jaspers now await their seeding in the NCAA Tourney.  Selection Sunday is March 15, and the Prep hopes Masiello will be following his alma mater that day if it can make it to the City final.

Depending on the scheduling, the Gaels who gather for the March 19 Watch Party at Butterfield 8 in New York City might just get a chance to watch Masiello's Jaspers during that Thursday's First Round action.
