07:32 AM ET 11.19 | Credit Iona senior guard Sean Armand for his confidence heading into the Gaels' game at Kansas. "Yes, I'm going into the game expecting to win, just like every other game we play," the Brooklyn native told SNY.tv Monday. You might wonder how Iona, a two-time NCAA Tournament qualifier out of the MAAC, came to play Kansas, a perennial Final Four contender featuring the projected No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft in Andrew Wiggins. The answer is that Iona President Dr. Joseph E. Nyre is an alumnus of Kansas who did his graduate work there. ... "[Playing Kansas] is an opportunity to play one of the best programs in the country and [gain] experience for our guys and use it as a measuring stick for where we have to be, and find out a lot about our strengths and weaknesses and help develop for the rest of the season," Iona coach Tim Cluess said.

Don't say that around cops too loud or you'll get arrested, that's a felony in some states.
