Fairfield 89, Quinnipiac 86 (OT) – Call It A Rivalry

A mere eleven days after Fairfield squandered a 14 point second half lead against in-state rival Quinnipiac, the Stags nearly outdid themselves by letting a 16 point advantage slip away on the Bobcats’ home court.

Fairfield 69, Rider 67: Amadou Sidibe Gets Just Rewards

Amidst the wins and losses, the stories of the individual players that inhabit mid-major basketball often get lost in the shuffle. Amadou Sidibe was a good sophomore player on a bad Fairfield squad in 2014-15 (7-25). The next season was worse, believe it or not, because early in the season Sidibe developed knee problems that […]

Quinnipiac 73, Fairfield 71: Bobcats Battle Back

Siena 63, Fairfield 54: No Clareth, But Defense Real Story

Just six weeks ago, Nico Clareth almost single-handedly buried Fairfield at the Times Union Center, leading a 27-4 first-half run, and then when the Stags had somewhat amazingly come all the way back to tie it, hit a few more big shots to make sure Siena held on 80-73.

Canisius 86, Fairfield 72: Griffs Might Have Staying Power

Canisius could have been forgiven for being blown out by Iona. They weren’t the first, and surely aren’t the last – even if the Gaels do not quite look like their dominant selves this season – to be buried in a flurry of three-pointers at the Hynes Center.
