Dayton, Ohio • Drawing upon what Virginia Commonwealth did last year in the NCAA Tournament after appearing in a First Four game, Iona coach Tim Cluess said the Gaels are playing up the Cinderella angle as much as they can as they approach Tuesday's game against BYU.
Tipoff is at 7 p.m. MDT or 30 minutes after the conclusion of the night's first game, and will be televised by TruTV.
"I wouldn't even say that we're on an even playing [field] with BYU," Cluess said at Monday's introductory news conference. "BYU is I think a Sweet 16 team or something last year and has a richer history than we do. So for us to go into this game, we're looking at it like we're the Cinderella team, and we're going to try to go out and show everyone we can play."
