Sit Down with Sydney Johnson: Fairfield finds winning touch again

Due to some inclement weather and conflicting schedules, this week’s chat with Fairfield University men’s basketball coach Sydney Johnson was done by phone.

Johnson, who was hitting the road to recruit Tuesday while the team had a rare day off, and the Stags (12-10, 4-6 MAAC) have two straight going into Friday’s home game with Rider at the Webster Bank Arena. Tip off is 7 p.m.

Among our topics this week are, why the Stags are playing better after a five-game skid, the inserting Dez Wade and Josip Mikulic back into the starting line up and the health of freshman Justin Jenkins. Johnson also talks about winning his 100th game as a head coach.
