After every Manic Monday is a Tragic Tuesday. Last season, I'd often conveniently forget to tab a G!O!T!N! on Tuesdays, and only one or two of the 25 regular readers cared. But now that The Mid-Majority is the number one site with D1 assistant coaches and sports information directors, godda do it daily.
But because I'm Mr. Brightside, I like to use this light day to point out teams and players that don't regularly get the pub. Sure, Fairfield (3-8, 1-2) and Rider (4-7, 0-3) will likely be playing on first round Friday at the MAAC tourney in Albany, but they're both intriguing collections of awkwardly-matching parts. Senior Stags forward Dewitt Maxwell
(15.5 ppg) is returning from a semester in the spanking machine after a team-rules violation, and Terrence Todd
is a streaky little three-point shooter. On the Rider side, they;ve got a pair of Thompson gunners (Jason
) and distribute well (MAAC-best 60.6% assisted-basket percentage)But if there's anything these two squads have in common, it's horrible defense: Rider has the 268th most efficient D (104.0 raw rating), and Fairfield's is ninth-worst in the country (111.2, 324th). If either team scores 100 points, everybody wins a chalupa.
