Why Don’t Majors Play At Mid-Majors More Often? They Might Lose

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 […]

Three Thoughts: Quinnipiac 80, Lehigh 65

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 […]

Papale’s Three-Pointer Foils Quinnipiac Again

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.

Three Thoughts: Fairfield 56, Quinnipiac 52 (OT) (Fairfield edition)

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 […]

Three Thoughts: Siena 88, Quinnipiac 67

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, […]

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 […]
