Fairfied vs. Rider Pre-Game

Keith is having some computer issues...there is no power strip near our seats and he still doesn't have a battery for his computer, so I'll be filling in for him again tonight.

A couple pre-game notes:

  • Big game for the Stags for multiple reasons. First of all Rider appears to be one of the best teams in the MAAC, led by Jason Thompson, a future NBA Draft Pick who is averaging 20.1 points per game and 12.1 rebounds per game this season. Also the Stags have a chance to move into a tie for at least fifth place with a win, and possibly move up higher depending on the outcome of the Loyola and Niagara games today.
  • Fairfield is riding a three game winning streak, its longest of the season.
  • With a win in at least two of his final five games of the season, Head Coach Ed Cooley would become the first head coach to have a .500 record in the MAAC during his first two seasons.
  • Geoff Middleton is getting the start today, along with Anthony Johnson, Warren Edney, and the usual Han and Allen at guards.
  • Should be interesting what Middleton does, maybe he is in their to bang bodies with Thompson to start the game. Cooley again with a strange line-up, he seems to do it a ot.
