Jim Baron and the Golden Griffins will have their work cut out for them this season. Coming into the 2014-2015 campaign, Canisius is without their star players from last season: Billy Baron, Jordan Heath and Chris Perez.
It hasn’t been a good start for the Northeast Conference, but tonight the league had a chance to earn some victories against mid-major equals. Let’s see how everyone fared on the first Wednesday of the 2014-15 season!
Army led by as many as 12 points at the Pope Center on Wednesday night, but a late run closed the gap for St. Francis Brooklyn and gave Brent Jones a decent look from three to tie the game. Unfortunately that attempt clanged off the left rim. Army moved to 3-0 on the young season, while […]
In 2013-14, Northeastern’s offense was heavily dependent on scoring in the paint. Led by second-team All-CAA forward Scott Eatherton, 48% of the Huskies’ shots were taken at the rim — ninth-highest in the nation — and just 22% of their scoring came from three-pointers. So entering Sunday’s cross-town rivalry game, Boston University coach Joe Jones […]
Quinnipiac head coach Tom Moore said afterward he would have loved to have been a fly on the wall in the La Salle huddle to see what Dr. John Giannini did to keep his team upbeat even when they were going through a hideous offensive night, trailing by double digits six minutes into the second […]
After a last-second loss to Stony Brook to start the season Columbia welcomed Wagner to Levien Gymnasium on Tuesday night. The Lions were still without a number of key players due to injury and went almost 10.5 minutes in the second half without a field goal, but managed to pull out a 14-point victory over […]
In coach-speak, they’re called BLOBs and SLOBs for baseline out of bounds plays and sideline out of bounds plays, respectively, and most coaches agree that they don’t spend enough time practicing them, while players are nearly unanimous that they work on them too much because if they wanted to run through plays over and over, […]
On the road, playing an ACC team without their starting big man, Hofstra put up a fight in a 76-64 loss to N.C. State.
The America East picked up a grand total of three wins over the season’s first four days. However, that doesn’t mean there haven’t been positive signs from some of the league’s best teams. Providence currently leads the conference standings with victories over Albany and Binghamton, if only they played in the league full time. Meanwhile, Vermont […]
After dropping their season opener against a more athletic and talented Cincinnati squad, Saint Francis University (SFU) admirably stood toe to toe with the defending Patriot League champions before falling in defeat after Dominique Major’s three-pointer at the buzzer clanged off the back of the rim. It was a difficult loss, considering the Red Flash […]
