Yes, there has been some variety, but unlike many other conferences this season the Patriot League has played fairly close to form in the non-conference slate.

In each team’s final non-conference matchup of 2014, Quinnipiac defeated Maine 81-64. The final margin may be indicative of the quality gap between these two squads, but the Black Bears showed toughness as they nearly erased a 17-point first half deficit.

Having not seen Hofstra this season, but plenty of Niagara two years ago, it was the first chance for my eyes to adjust to Juan’ya Green and Ameen Tanksley in gold instead of purple. My memory of Green is as a pure scorer, but the numbers don’t exactly back that up. As a freshman on […]
There are three sides to every story, they say, and there are probably more to most college basketball games we watch over the course of the season. But Tulane’s visit to the Barclays Center was a pretty simple case of not a lot going in favor of the Green Wave, even before they stepped into […]
