Fairfield vs. Iona key players to watch

Fairfield

Brycen Goodline: Fairfield would be smart to let Brycen Goodine continue to shoot from three point land. He's shooting 47.5% from beyond the arc on 99 attempts this season, yet Caleb Fields (38.6%) continues to be Fairfield's primary perimeter shooter. Let Brycen Cook.

Iona

Wheza Panzo: Iona's guard torched Fairfield the last time these two teams played, going for 23 points which included going 7-of-13 from beyond the arc. Fairfield is going to have to find a way to slow him down if the Stags want to break their losing streak at Iona.

Fairfield vs. Iona prediction and pick

There's not much separating these two teams. No matter what metric you want to look at, Fairfield and Iona rank close to each other in the national rankings. There is one big area that leans in the Stags' favor and it's something that leads me to believe they have a shot at snapping their road losing streak against Iona.

This season, Fairfield's effective field goal percentage is 4.1% better on the road than at home, which is rare in college basketball. They have found a way to play great basketball when away from its home court.

That lone is enough for me to take the points with the Stags. Anything could happen in this MAAC game so I'll take the side getting a handful of points.
