Stags to Meet Boston College at Mohegan Sun on Dec. 21

The Fairfield men’s basketball team will play Boston College on Dec. 21 at the Birthday of Basketball celebration at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. The 6 p.m. game will be followed by a matchup between Oklahoma – a 2016 Final Four team – and Auburn. Stags fans can purchase tickets in the Fairfield fan section of Mohegan Sun Arena for $40 until 5 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15. Tickets include admission to both games as well as an invitation to an exclusive game day reception.

Purchases after Thursday, Dec. 15 must be made through Ticketmaster and will not include the game day reception.

Under the direction of Head Coach Sydney Johnson, Fairfield men’s basketball boasts a 5-3 record in the early stages of the 2016-17 campaign. The Stags, who won 19 games last season en route to a return to the national postseason stage, are led by nearly 20 points per game from Tyler Nelson and more than 11 rebounds per contest from Amadou Sidibe, who currently leads the MAAC in rebounding following his fifth consecutive double-double.

The Stags will be playing their AJCU foe Boston College for the first time since 2006. The rivalry with the Eagles began with a 76-65 Fairfield win in 1954. This year’s contest will be the 36th time that Fairfield and Boston College have met on the court.
