High Rollers: Shootout win over Saint Peter’s puts Stags back in business

The Fairfield men's basketball team scored over one hundred points for the first time in head coach Tim O'Toole's tenure. Charles Bentley '06, who has never started a game in his collegiate career, was in the starting lineup.

On Basketball: With this team you never know

On Feb. 11 at the Arena at Harbor Yard, after Fairfield had just been slaughtered by first place Iona, one of the first things out of Head Coach Tim O'Toole's mouth was, "we have to get more out of DeWitt Maxwell ['06]." Really though, he had to get more out of everyone: Maxwell, who was shut out by the Gaels and picked up just one rebound in 19 minutes; leading scorer Terrance Todd '06, who was held under 15 points for the third straight game; and just about everyone else who had failed to get the job done in the 89-66 rout, during which the Gaels went on an astounding 79-38 run.

Two weeks ago, the Fairfield women's basketball team and Head Coach Dianne Nolan seemed to be energized and eager to move forward after Nolan achieved her 500th career victory.

Doody Calls: The richest baseball history is black history

The best book I've ever read,"I Had a Hammer" by Hank Aaron, contains a couple of paragraphs about something worth pointing out to those in need of a lesson in black history: the best team Aaron ever played on never stepped foot on a Major League Field. That's because it was an all-star team of all black players, containing three members of the 500 home run club and the first black player in the American League.

500: Nolan gets milestone win as Stags beat Rider

The Fairfield women's basketball team did not have much to be excited about coming into last weekend's games. The Stags had dropped their last three games and had fallen to 4-4 in MAAC play. Fairfield bounced back, however, and ended the weekend especially energized.

The puck stops HERE

On fire. On a roll. Hot. Whichever cliché you want to use, it rings true for Fairfield hockey as the team steamrolled Columbia 11-1 Friday night at the Wonderland of Ice, winning its 16th straight game and further stating what has now become obvious: opposing teams do not want to come to the Wonderland, nor do they want anything to do with the Stags.

Women lose three straight on road trip; Nolan stuck on 498 wins

The Fairfield women's basketball team probably did not buy many "I Love NY" souvenirs during its three-game swing through the Empire State last week. The Stags lost three straight games to Siena, Canisius and Niagara, dropping their MAAC record to 4-4 and their overall record to 7-10.

Men routed by Marist, slip toward bottom of league standings

Tim O'Toole could hardly contain his anger. As he sat in the interview room at the McCann Center Friday night, he mocked his team's attempts to shut down Marist sharp-shooter Will Whittington, who had just completed a 25-point assault on the Stags, tying his own school record with eight three-pointers made in a 91-72 rout of the Stags.
