2013-14 Preview: Monmouth Hawks
Lack of depth, size could hurt Hawks in first season in MAAC
2012-13: 10-21 (5-13 NEC)
In-conference offense: 0.96 points per possession (11th, NEC)
In-conference defense: 1.05 points per possession (5th, NEC)
This is going to be a bumpy ride. Monmouth enters its first season in the MAAC without the firepower necessary to navigate the step up in competition from the NEC. In particular, the Hawks lack the frontcourt to consistently compete with the bigger teams they'll see in their new conference.
