Three Thoughts: Quinnipiac 69, NC Central 59

HAMDEN, Conn. – New season, same old Quinnipiac. The Bobcats crashed the offensive glass and attempted to pound North Carolina Central into submission. But, oh, that outside shooting, 309th nationally a year ago. Wait, that’s a nine next to Quinnipiac’s made three-pointer number on the boxscore? Hmmm. In fact, while the season is just four […]

Coming off a CBI title in Jimmy Patsos’ first season in Albany/Loudonville, the Saints couldn’t get out of their own way, almost literally, in an 11-20 campaign.

First Impressions at the Connecticut 6

  You never get a second chance to make a first impression (might as well get all the cliches out of the way on Opening Day), but in the mid-major basketball world, particularly for the six teams competing at the Connecticut 6 Friday night, first impressions will mean very little in the end.
