  • Tonight marks the second ever meeting between the two Fairfield, Conn. teams. Last season, the Stags defeated the Pioneers, 84-75. Guard Jon Han finished with a team-high 22 points and eight assists.
  • Fairfield had three scorers in double-digits on Saturday night against Memphis (Warren Edney - 27, John Han - 18, and Greg Nero - 10). The Stags were the first team since Kansas in last year's NCAA Championship game to shoot over .500 from the field against the Tigers. Only three teams did it last season (UAB, Austin Peay, and Southern Mississippi).
  • Ed Cooley to our own Tom Cleary this afternoon in the Barone Campus Center: "Saturday (against Memphis) was the best I've seen a Fairfield team play since I've been here."
