Under the direction of Head Coach Sydney Johnson, Fairfield men’s basketball enjoyed one of the best turnarounds in Division I last season, posting a 19-win effort after recording seven victories in 2014-15. The Stags reached the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Championship Semifinals and advanced to national postseason play as a participant in the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament (CIT).

Entering its 10th campaign under Head Coach Joe Frager, Fairfield women’s basketball also returned to the national postseason stage last winter. The Stags turned in a 16-win season, putting together their ninth consecutive year with a winning record in MAAC play, to qualify for the Women’s Basketball Invitational (WBI).

Fairfield Basketball plays home games at both Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport and on campus at George Bisacca Court at Alumni Hall. Times and locations for all home games will be published to FairfieldStags.com once the MAAC regular season schedule is finalized by the conference office.
