Sit down with Sydney – Battling in the MAAC

Met up with Fairfield men’s basketball coach Sydney Johnson after the Stags practice Monday afternoon for this week’s installment of Sit Down with Sydney.

Monday was the first day that Pitt transfer Malcolm Gilbert practiced with the team and the 6-foot-11 center broke a good sweat working out/sprinting with his new teammates. Johnson addresses Gilbert’s first practice in our conversation.

This week’s chat also goes over the team’s 1-1 road trip to western New York, which included an end to Fairfield’s six-game win streak with a loss at Niagara. Other topics include the team’s dominating defense, upcoming games with Loyola and Niagara, and Mo Barrow’s performance at Canisius.
