MAAC Stock Watch: Dec. 8

This week’s MAAC Stock Watch was delayed slightly thanks to the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference coaches conference call. Canisius and Fairfield share the top spot in the conference through the first weekend of MAAC play, just as everyone expected. Niagara’s reign over the top spot lasted fewer than two games and Quinnipiac shares the conference basement […]

Three Thoughts: Fairfield 56, Quinnipiac 52 (OT) (Fairfield edition)

Monday was indeed very blue for Fairfield, who lost a big lead at home to Bucknell and lost brutally in overtime. At that time, they were 2-5, losers of five of six, and were staring at Manhattan and Quinnipiac to open the MAAC season, surely with visions of last season’s 7-25 (and 4-16 in MAAC […]

Three Thoughts: Wofford 54, Fairfield 36

Fairfield went nearly 17 minutes without a field goal at the end of the first half and the first 13 minutes of the second, and that, friends, is never good. The end result was an ugly 54-36 to Wofford to open the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic at Webster Bank Arena Friday night. Quite frankly, the […]

NEC Recap – November 14, The Opening Night

With eight NEC programs beginning their 2014-15 season tonight, we summarized all of the opening night action. Going in, it wasn’t expected to be a strong night for the conference — according to KenPom, five of the eight teams were overwhelming underdogs (10% chance to win or less) with only Robert Morris considered as a moderate […]
