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

More projections

Mike Scullin's NIT and CBI bracket projections are done and Rider isn't in either field. 
Since this is the first time the CBI has picked a field, it may be a little trickier to see who ends up in the tournament. One factor to keep in mind is that unlike the NIT, the CBI is not run by the NCAA and is under no obligation to pick teams with better resumes over teams with better drawing power. 
So Rider could benefit from the drawing power of Jason Thompson more when the CBI picks its field than a team with a better RPI but no potential first-round draft picks. 
But if Mike proves close to as good at picking the NIT and CBI fields as he was picking the NCAA field, Rider could be in trouble. 
He got 64 out of the 65 NCAA teams right, with his only error being picking Virginia Tech as an NCAA team and leaving Villanova out.
