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

Monday's stories

Fairfield's starters were bad early but good enough late, and the Stags edged Manhattan.

These aren't your big brother's Golden Griffins.

The biggest story with a local angle in our paper had nothing to do with Rider.

In case you missed it:

Duke commit Kyrie Irving was way too much for Trenton Catholic Academy.

RPI implications: Temple (which beat Siena) edged Rhode Island (which beat Fairfield) in overtime.

More A-10 news at least somewhat relevant to the MAAC: The UMass-La Salle game at the MassMutual Center (site of the 2012-14 MAAC tournaments) drew 4,012 fans -- the Minutemen's biggest home crowd of the year despite the game being 28 miles from the UMass campus in Amherst.

Oh yeah, and a team playing with six scholarship players beat the No. 1 team in the country.
