Stags Join Coaches vs. Cancer 3-Point Challenge

Head Coach Sydney Johnson has announced that the Fairfield University men’s basketball team is joining the Coaches vs. Cancer 3-Point Challenge. Stags fans can pledge to make a donation for every three-pointer that Fairfield converts in the month of February.

“The 3-Point Challenge is going to revolutionize our online fundraising efforts through the Coaches vs. Cancer platform. With a few clicks to a unique URL, fans from around the country can make online pledges for their favorite teams, whether high school or college, and watch the donations from 3-point shots roll in to help fund the Society’s mission,” said David Doan, VP, Strategic Alliances, Sports.

Fans can join Fairfield’s campaign and donate for every made three-pointer at https://pledgeit.org/cvc-fairfield. Teams can be matched up against their rival schools to see who can raise the most funds from their made three-pointers, and fans can follow the leaderboard to see who will become the 3-Point Challenge Champion.

The Stags have made 131 three-pointers to date this season, an average of more than eight per game. Tyler Nelson ’18 leads the way with 40 three-pointers, followed by 33 from fellow Massachusetts native Curtis Cobb ’19.  Fairfield will play a total of nine Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference games during the month of February.

The Stags are back on the court on Friday, Jan. 20 for a 7 p.m. trip to defending MAAC Champion Iona. Fairfield defeated the visiting Gaels, 93-87, at home on Jan. 2. Action returns to Webster Bank Arena on Saturday, Jan. 28 as Marist comes to town for a 1 p.m. contest.
