Flying High in March
Now in his fourth season at Monmouth King Rice has the Hawks flying high in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. After two years of growing pains in the Northeast Conference, Monmouth accepted an invitation to join the MAAC. The Hawks inaugural season presented many challenges, but that first year of experience has served them well this season. 2014-15 has been a breakout season for Monmouth. The Hawks concluded the regular season with 17 overall wins and finished tied with Manhattan for third place in the conference. Not bad for a program in just its second season in the league. The wins are the most since CollegeInsider.com’s own Dave Calloway led the Hawks to 19 wins in 2005-06. It’s been eight years since Monmouth last went to postseason. The Hawks next trip to postseason may be just a couple of weeks away.
