November 29th, 2010 by Anthony Santiago

In this week’s edition of the 7 Minute Sports Slam, I bring to you the last segment in the Jim Paquette Interview series.

In this segment, Jim and I talked about the expectations of the Basketball Team, a team that this year shows promise in making it far in the MAAC Championship, and the overall expectations of each respective sport.

In the interview, I try to determine why certain support for specific sports fall the way that they do. Jim does a great job of opening up the Athletic Program to students and allowing for students to get a better understand of things under the hood of our program.
