Today marks the start of the MAAC tournament, and we at Big Apple Buckets thought it would be worthwhile to take a closer look at each team in their quest to represent the MAAC in the NCAA Tournament. Each team makes the trip to Springfield with a different set of pros and cons, and dealing […]
On Friday night against Marist, Fairfield head coach Sydney Johnson and the Stags will honor lone senior Mo Barrow.
It was more of a tightrope walk than a basketball game, and Quinnipiac was walking with no safety net. There was no room for error.

All-in-all Sunday wasn’t a bad day to be a team from the New York City area. Metro area teams were a decisive 3-1 on the day – with the lone loss of course being in the highest profile game of the day – and even Marist earned its first win of the season by winning […]
