In a 1-bid league, winning the conference tournament is all that matters. And the River Hawks currently aren’t in position to do that. They’re in second in the America East, the league that boasts infamous bracket-busters UMBC, behind Vermont. UMass Lowell has had a more impressive season overall, but has fallen behind the Catamounts in conference play. The America East Conference Tournament is held at campus sites, which gives Vermont an advantage. If the River Hawks can make the NCAA Tournament, they’ve got some Saint Peter’s-like swagger to them.
