BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Ed Cooley's homecoming went as well as he could have asked for tonight. The former Fairfield and first-year Providence coach came back to Connecticut and coached his team to an 80-72 win in front of a record-setting regular-season crowd at the Webster Bank Arena.

For Cooley, it was emotional not only because he used to coach the Stags ('06-'11), but also because he coached against a player he knows well, recruited to Boston College and envisioned coaching this year at Fairfield: Eagles transfer and fifth-year player Rakim Sanders. Sanders scored 25 in the loss for FU tonight. I'll have a post up in a bit on the night for everyone involved, but here are the two one-on-one interviews with the head coaches from tonight.

First, Cooley.
