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

Wednesday morning links

A few links before I throw in the towel on watching election coverage and get a little sleep:

* The CollegeInsider mid-major top 25 is out, and two MAAC teams are ranked -- Fairfield at No. 10 and Siena at No. 20. Iona is also receiving votes.

* Speaking of Fairfield, Ed Cooley and Derek Needham raved last week at media day about the progress Greg Nero has made since returning from a weakened immune system to perform like an all-league candidate in preseason workouts.

Well, as Chris Elsberry writes, Nero's progress was on display Monday night, when the fifth-year senior had 13 points and eight rebounds in 16 minutes.

* Wondering why Edwin Ubiles wasn't selected in Monday's D league draft? As Mark Singelais writes, Ubiles' agent pulled him out of the draft, but he has signed a D league contract and will be on a team when he's done rehabbing a leg injury that slowed him for much of last year.

* Jerry Carino has lots of good stuff from Kevin Willard's first media day at Seton Hall.

Lastly, a programming note: I'll be talking MAAC hoops with Ryan Feldman on Hoops Talk Live today in the noon hour. Should be fun.
