A Preview of the Fairfield vs. William and Mary BracketBuster Game

This Saturday, the Stags will play Colonial Athletic Conference opponent William and Mary in one of the O'Reilly ESPNU BracketBuster games.

The Tribe competes against schools such as Hofstra, James Madison, George Mason and Delaware. This year, William and Mary is 15-11 overall and 8-8 in conference play.

This year's Tribe's is one of five teams in school history with 15 D-1 regular season wins.

Like Fairfield, William and Mary also has a solid defense. This season, the Tribe posts a scoring defense of 65.9 ppg -- good for fourth in CAA play. In comparison, the Stags lead the MAAC in scoring defense, allowing only 65.1 ppg.

Expect close play throughout the game. William and Mary comes into the game off a solid victory against Drexel its last time out. However, look for Fairfield to recover from its Wednesday-night loss to Siena and come out strong.
