The MAAC midway

National sports news outlet the Bleacher Report recently summed up the first half of the MAAC season, and, not surprisingly, realized that Siena is doing pretty good. Here's what they had to see about our Stags:

"Fairfield has an upcoming stretch of four must-win games against Manhattan, Marist, Loyola, and Canisius. The games against Manhattan and Canisius are on the road, and Fairfield needs to win those games to prove that they belong in the upper third."

Must-wins? That's an understatement. My only beef with the piece was the summary of Fairfield's two "close" games with Siena. Sure, New Year's Day was a quality game - even without a healthy Warred Edney - but the Bleacher Creatures clearly missed game two. As for the rest of the story, I'm buying the Chuck Martin and the '09 Marist team to last year's Stags comparison. Intriguing.
