The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC, /mæk/ ) is a collegiate athletic conference affiliated with NCAA Division I, consisting of eleven schools located in three states of the northeastern United States: Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York.

Contents

Members are all relatively small private institutions, a majority Catholic or formerly Catholic, with the only exceptions being three secular institutions: Rider University and the conference's two newest members, Monmouth University and Quinnipiac University.

The MAAC currently sponsors 23 sports and is also home to 17 associate member institutions.

The conference was founded in 1980 by six charter members: the U.S. Military Academy, Fairfield University, Fordham University, Iona College, Manhattan College, and Saint Peter's College. [1] Competition officially began the next year, in the sports of men’s cross-country and men’s soccer. [1]

Competition in men's and women's basketball began in the 1981–1982 season. [1] In 1982, Saint Peter's was the first women's team to represent the MAAC in the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament. In 1984, the MAAC received an automatic bid to the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, where Iona was the first team to represent the MAAC on the men's side.

The conference currently possesses 15 automatic bids to NCAA Championships. [1] In 2012–13, the MAAC became eligible for its 15th NCAA Championship automatic bid when women's rowing fulfilled the qualifying requirements. [1]

The league added football in 1993, but discontinued it following the 2007 season.

From 1997 to 2003, the MAAC sponsored ice hockey. At that time, the hockey league split from the MAAC and changed its name to Atlantic Hockey. Also, Marist College and Rider University moved the majority of their intercollegiate athletic programs to the MAAC in 1997 with the intent that the MAAC would enhance media exposure and competition for their men's and women's Division I basketball programs. [2]

In September 2011, the conference announced the launch of MAAC.TV, the league's first broadband network.

In March 2012, for the first time in 16 years, the MAAC had two teams advance to the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship, with Loyola earning the league's automatic bid and Iona garnering an at-large bid. [1]

In July 2013, Quinnipiac University and Monmouth University joined the MAAC to replace Loyola University Maryland, departing to the Patriot League. [3] Also in 2013, the MAAC announced that it would add field hockey with league play set to begin in the 2013–14 academic year. [4] However, field hockey was dropped after the 2018 season with the MAAC field hockey league was effectively taken over by the Northeast Conference, which reinstated the sport the following year. [5] The conference decided to no longer host a conference championship for men's rowing after the 2016 season, which is governed by the Intercollegiate Rowing Association.

Over the conference's history, MAAC teams have achieved national acclaim in many sports. In the summer of 2002, the Marist men's varsity eight boat advanced to the semifinals of the Temple Challenge Cup at the Henley Royal Regatta. [6] In 2007, the Marist women's basketball team advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Women's Division I Basketball Championship. [7] The Red Foxes have recorded five NCAA wins since their run in 2007. In the fall of 2011, the Iona men's cross country team finished tied for ninth place at the NCAA Championship race, extending the Gaels' streak to 10 straight Top 10 national finishes. [1] In basketball, MAAC teams have made a total of 80 NIT appearances and 50 NCAA basketball tournament appearances. [1]

Notable MAAC student athletes include Mary Beth Riley, a 1991 graduate of Canisius, who was the first recipient of the NCAA Woman of the Year Award and Erin Whalen, a member of the Iona women's rowing team who in the fall of 1998 was awarded one of the nation's 32 Rhodes Scholarships for academic achievement and civic leadership.

Men's Basketball NCAA Tournament at-large bids

In 2012, Iona, who was inspired by one of their all around best players Sean Armand, which had lost in the semifinals of that year's MAAC tournament, received an NCAA at-large tournament bid. This was the second time the conference was awarded multiple men's NCAA bids.

After St. Peter’s won the 1995 MAAC tournament, the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament selection committee awarded Manhattan College an at large bid. The Jaspers proved the committee correct by defeating Oklahoma in the first round. [15]

However, the same first-round success Manhattan enjoyed in the 1995 NCAA tournament could not be matched by Iona. In the 2012 NCAAs, the Gaels unexpectedly relinquished a 25-point, first-half lead to the BYU Cougars, falling 78–72 in Dayton, Ohio. Further, Iona's offense, the highest-scoring (per game) in the nation, managed just 17 points in the second half of that upset.

It was the largest comeback in NCAA tournament history, besting the 22-point hole the Duke Blue Devils rallied from to defeat the Maryland Terrapins in the Final Four of the 2001 NCAA Tournament. [16]
