Three Thoughts: Stony Brook 74, Hartford 59

Mark Nwakamma came out to jump center on Senior Night Saturday just as he had for almost every game of his collegiate career for Hartford. Only when the referee tossed the ball, Nwakamma didn’t even jump, allowing Stony Brook to control the ball. The whistle then blew, Nwakamma shook hands with everyone and walked off […]

America East Stock Watch: Feb. 3

Albany, whose 9-0 start in conference is no fluke, has won 12 of their last 13 games, their only loss being a game at Niagara where head coach Will Brown said his team’s flu symptoms helped create the Great Danes’ worst performance to date.

Three Thoughts: Albany 62, Hartford 53

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, and Albany just may be the team to beat in America East with or without Peter Hooley. For the second time in four days, the Great Danes went on the road against a team picked above them in the preseason conference coaches’ poll and systematically took […]

Three Thoughts: Yale 69, Hartford 57

For a nine-minute span to start the second half, Yale showed why Hartford coach John Gallagher was able to say afterward, “I know people are going to say Harvard, but I think Yale is the best basketball team in the Ivy League right now.” After slogging through a first half and being stymied at every […]

Hartford’s Second Trip To Quinnipiac Better Than First

Score one for not taking performances in early-season games too much to heart, I guess. When they came into the TD Bank Sports Center on Nov. 14, Hartford was full of pith and confidence, picked second in America East, full of veteran players (six seniors and returning all five starters), and led by All-America East […]
