Blogs > The Full-Court Press

Welcome back to the Trentonian's Full-Court Press blog. Yes, we're still alive, and with the 2015-16 season rapidly approaching, it's time to fire up the old blog for another season. Check back here throughout the year for updates on all things Rider and Princeton, including coverage of both the MAAC and Ivy League. Feel free to drop me a line on twitter @kj_franko ( or email

Upsets abundant

Finally, it's time to relax. 
The weekend is over and there's no more speculating about which teams will get bitten by the upset bug. The Patriots are still standing while the Packers are not; Memphis is still standing; North Carolina wishes it could say the same. In the Big East, UConn pulled off an upset -- which the TCHB witnessed at Gampel Pavilion, while Rutgers couldn't quite pull one out at DePaul. The notoriously vile upset bug even spread to the MAAC, where normally pathetic Canisius stunned cross-town rival Niagara. Rider escaped with a narrow win despite a furious comeback by sharp-shooting Manhattan. We'll take a look at what ramifications all the upsets had tomorrow in the TCHB's weekly top 30. 
Now, though, it's time to start praying that the upset bug spares the Patriots, and hence, spares tri-state area Pats fans the non-stop harassment we'd be sure to endure if the high-flyin G-Men emerge victorious two weeks from today in Glendale.
