Mirror Homecoming: Q&A with Ben Doody

As if the prospect of facing the top team in the MAAC is not enough hype for this weekend's game against Rider, Saturday has a little more significant for us here at "The Mirror" - as former Editor-in-Chief and columnist Ben Doody comes home. Doody is currently a beat writer covering Rider Men's Basketball for "The Trentonian", a regional newspaper in Trenton, N.J. Earlier this season, he covered Rutgers Football for the paper, and is also a regular contributor to NCAA basketball coverage.

We recently had a chance to catch up with Ben and ask him his outlook on Rider, the state of the MAAC, and his views on Fairfield's season. We very much appreciate the time, and he's a friend to all of us here at 'The Mirror' (even despite his Yankee remarks)

Enjoy this special edition of 'Doody Calls':

'The Mirror': Having watched him all season, how impressive is Rider forward Jason Thompson? Is the NBA-hype well deserved? How would he rank among MAAC players you've seen in your tenure as a reporter?
