Mount St. Mary's playoff picture

With three games remaining against Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference opponents, the Mountaineers are still in the race for a berth in the four-team MAAC tournament, which begins May 1.

There are still a lot of games to be played and anything can happen between now and the final weekend, but here’s what we know:

* With a 5-0 league record, Siena is the only undefeated team in the MAAC. A victory over Mount St. Mary’s on Saturday will lock up a spot in the tournament.

* Providence is 5-1 in the conference and owns a key tiebreaker over third-place Marist after beating the Red Foxes, 9-7, on Wednesday. A win against Manhattan next Wednesday will cement a berth in the tournament.

* Marist is 4-1 and has three league games left. The Red Foxes need two victories over St. Joseph’s, Siena and Manhattan.

* The Mountaineers and Manhattan have identical 3-2 conference marks, but Mount St. Mary’s owns the tiebreaker after beating the Jaspers, 12-9, on March 14. The Mountaineers will be the underdogs against Siena, but have remaining games against winless Wagner and VMI. Manhattan tangles with seventh-place Canisius before dealing with Providence and Marist. So it would seem that the schedule is on the side of Mount St. Mary’s.
