Quinnipiac got, at least by terms of conference affiliation, its biggest win in school history Sunday afternoon, toppling Pac-12 giant Oregon State 60-52 at the TD Bank Center. As with much in life, there are a couple of things that aren’t exactly what they seem in the preceding sentence. But before we get to that, let’s […]
Quinnipiac coach Tom Moore knew he had seen it. At least in spurts. But maybe that was in practice or was it a scrimmage? Could he have been imagining it? Maybe Gio McLean held the key to it, but he wasn’t going to be playing this season. No, it was there in the season-opening win […]
Boston University and Quinnipiac may not seem like natural basketball rivals, but their non-conference series has been plenty entertaining. Their prior four meetings all went down to the wire, and in each of the last two, a late three-pointer propelled the Terriers to victory. So in the waning seconds of Sunday’s tie game, when John Papale […]
I meant to write this on Thursday, but you know, life and stuff got in the way. Now though the MAAC December weekend is finished and we’ve now got a robust (hah!) two-game sample size with which to judge every MAAC school. Did we learn anything?
Fairfield managed to prevail for their second straight MAAC victory, thanks to some timely contributions, while the Bobcats could not defend up three late. Here is a photo gallery from that game.
Foul or Defend?
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 […]
Siena opened MAAC play Friday evening with a resounding 88-67 victory over Quinnipiac to start 1-0 in the conference. After dropping a difficult two-point road loss at Fordham earlier in the week, the Saints looked to be headed to another close game as they entered halftime leading the Bobcats by just two – 40-38. However, […]
Ousmane Drame entered Sunday with 967 career points and ended the day with 1,000. The senior forward poured in a career-high 33 points to reach the milestone and power Quinnipiac to a commanding 89-73 win over Vermont.
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 […]
