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

Opening night

Happy new year, hoops junkies!

It's opening night for a bevy of teams throughout the country, including seven teams in the MAAC.

With that in mind, a trip around the league:

In the Albany Times Union, Pete Iorizzo writes that Siena's opponent is an unknown.

In the Niagara Gazette, Jonah Bronstein writes that Niagara's potential at-large status might hinge on tonight's game at Auburn.

In the Connecticut Post, Bill Paxton previews tonight's Connecticut Six Classic clash between a banged-up Fairfield team and Central Connecticut State.

In the New York Daily News, Sean Brennan writes that Kevin Willard is looking forward to playing a more up-tempo style as Iona gets ready to host Boston University.

In the Bergen Record, John Rowe writes that Seton Hall -- which takes on Saint Peter's tonight in a battle of North Jersey Catholic schools -- thinks it has something special.

Then there's that game tonight in Starkville, which pits Rider against defending SEC tournament champion Mississippi State.

If anyone has a link to a Loyola-UVM preview, send it my way and I'll post it.

Marist (at Rutgers) and Manhattan (at home against lowly NJIT) open tomorrow, while Canisius won't play until Tuesday at Loyola-Chicago.
