MAAC Weekly Recap – Thanksgiving Eve

Mark it down as a week to forget for the MAAC, which went a combined 5-16 since our last recap. A few programs picked up their first wins of the season while others suffered some losses where “disappointing” would be an understatement.

Sacred Heart 88, St. Francis U. 78: Pioneers Have Come A Long Way

FAIRFIELD, Conn. – We’ve reached the portion of the season where everything comes down to how you perform in conference tournaments, but before we get too crazy, it’s a good time to recognize those teams who had great regular seasons that may sadly get soon forgotten, no?

Per a source inside the Pioneers’ program, junior forward De’von Barnett had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder in June and will likely miss the entire 2015-16 season as a result. Continue reading

Three Thoughts: Sacred Heart 84, Bryant 75 (OT)

Three Thoughts: Yale 70, Sacred Heart 64

I’ve (pretty much unsuccessfully) tried to start the #RoadGamesAreHard hashtag this season, so I should have been less surprised than most to see Yale struggle to put away Sacred Heart Tuesday afternoon. They finally did 70-64 to go to 10-4 on the season, but it wasn’t pretty to watch, with 20 turnovers (in 64 possessions) and a spirited rally from an improved Pioneer team late.
