Sit Down with Sydney – MAAC Tournament time

This week’s Sit Down with Fairfield men’s basketball coach Sydney Johnson takes a look at how the Stags finished the regular season and also we look ahead to the MAAC Tournament, which begins Friday night in Springfield, Mass.

Fairfield finished the regular season 9-9 in the MAAC and earned the No. 7 seed. The Stags will play a first-round game against No. 10 Saint Peter’s at about 9:30 Friday night at the MassMutual Center in Springfield. Fairfield swept the season series with the Peacocks.

The Stags have played in the MAAC championship game twice in the past three seasons, but were knocked out in the semifinals by Saint Peter’s two years ago at the Webster Bank Arena.
