Chicks dig the long ball. Or that’s what Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux would tell you. Of course, they weren’t talking about basketball, but the slogan transitions between sports pretty smoothly.
To call K.J. Rose’s shooting in the last few games a slump may not really do it justice. A famine, maybe? Since a 26-point outburst on 9-16 from the field in an overtime loss to Bucknell on Dec. 1, the Fairfield sophomore had made just seven of his last 37 shots heading into Friday’s game […]
A spectacular second half in which Iona junior A.J. English pocketed 18 points including four 3-pointers propelled the Gaels past Fairfield 74-58 Tuesday evening and into a tie with Monmouth for first place in the MAAC at 5-1.
