This is a good informative article able Han and the injuries to all the other players. But, why isn't there more written about the amazing job the current players are doing? Though depleted, they won 3 of the last 4 games and have beem playing very well. For instance, Jordan and Hawkins have filled in quite nicely and put up some pretty imprrssive numbers during this period.

There seems to be a relunctance from the coaching staff and those who cover Fairfield basketball to acknowledge the "other" talented players who have stepped up the plate. Thanks for listening.

so, this is what it's coming down to in sports:,,,a player feels it's OK to YELL at an assistant coach OUTSIDE the locker room?......why wasn't he kicked off the team on the spot?.....look, i'm aware that situations arise in competitive situations, but to have THAT happen OUTSIDE the locker room, in earshot of the press and public?.....inexcusable.....lo ok, kids, you have a "problem" with a coach?....take a shower, cool off and ASK politely to speak with the coach to express your concerns/questions in his office!.......for a college senior, at a great institution like fairfield u, to behave in such a manner is not only a blemish on the school, but a reflection on this 21-22-year old's upbringing!......may this not be a wasted lesson for him, or other young players coming up.....and good for the team for going 3-1 without this "alleged" star......God bless!

I stand behind Coach Cooley 100%. It is his team and he needs to do what is best for it, not cave into a whiney kid's tantrums. I agree that he added something to the team, but he also took something away from it by his behavior. Bad move on Han's part.

and ya know, it PROBABLY isn't even ALL the kid's fault....since he's probably had his heiney kissed since he showed he was a "better" basketball player than his peers, "team", "right and wrong" and "the right thing" often gets lost in the shuffle.....more and more these kids have parents and travel team coach's tellin' them how "great" they are.....and of course, when his "team" loses, he's got mommy and daddy tellin' him it's not HIS fault, but the fault of the coach, or other players!!!....we are quickly mass-producing "players" who not only don't understand the game of basketball, but who are NEVER taught the joy of being a "team member"!.....God bless!

Han is a punk. He always has been and always will be. He took more out of this team than he gave. He is "pay to play" player acting like a superstar. This is good for Fairfield.

i don't think it's real nice to name-call, but if what you say is true, i seriously contend it's NOT all his fault....insofar as this young man "ALWAYS" being the way he is now, let's pray not....we should all learn from our mistakes and grow from them...hopefully, this episode will have a positive affect, not only on this player, but on young players, coaches and parents all around!.....God bless!
