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. However, the heroics of Tyler Nelson and Jerry Johnson Jr. helped Fairfield avoid disaster and avenge their previous loss with […]
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 […]
A New England team staged an improbable second half comeback thanks in part to questionable clock management by its opponent. No, this is not a Super Bowl summary.
At the midpoint of the MAAC season, it’s worth examining where each team in the league stands and where they might end up over the next six weeks. Here is a team-by-team analysis based on the current standings, along with mid-season all-MAAC teams:
Monmouth put together perhaps its most convincing victory of the season on Sunday with a 42-point victory over Fairfield. Justin Robinson once again led the way 20 points and Louie Pillari and Collin Stewart each scored 13 points off the bench. The Hawks are now 16-5 (8-2 in the MAAC). Here’s the video recap.
Iona has still yet to lose a regular season series in the Tim Cluess era. The Gaels led throughout and held off conference foe Fairfield 96-89 Friday night, earning revenge for a 93-87 loss earlier in the month in Bridgeport.
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. In all, the talented Clareth finished […]
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. First-year coach, team picked closer to the […]
Seton Hall leads our New York City power rankings as we start conference play.
“They are what we thought they were,” is the famous line that stuck with Dennis Green, who sadly was among the seemingly hundreds of famous people who died in 2016. But what we think can be fluid, can’t it? Iona entered the season ahead of Fairfield in the MAAC preseason poll, albeit only by a […]
