NCAA Tournament LIU Brooklyn vs. Radford

NCAA Tournament LIU Brooklyn vs. Radford

The Highlanders have two tournament appearances, the last in 2009.

The Wildcats have played LIU Brooklyn once and never have seen the Radford Highlanders in program history.

However, the Highlanders notched their first-ever NCAA tournament win thanks to a strong second half.

In the first "First Four" play-in game of the NCAA men's basketball tournament, LIU Brooklyn and Radford will square off, with the victor claiming the No. 16 seed and a date with top-seeded Villanova in the East Region.

"We tried to commit extra bodies to him", said Radford coach Mike Jones, who has presided what was a five-year rebuild, "We tried to load the box and make sure that, like in football, that there's a lot of bodies in there when he's trying to get a bucket".

Two decades ago, Cage was even lined up to star in Tim Burton 's Superman Lives movie , before the project ultimately fell apart. Somehow, we think comic book blockbusters would be very different today if this movie had come to pass.

"We remained calm", Polite said. When looking at how many favorites have been knocked out in the first round as a No. 2 seed, it's only a matter of time before a No. 16 seed pulls off the unthinkable by becoming the first team to finally earn a win. Of their first 19 shots, 12 of them were from three-point range, connecting on only two of them.

The Highlanders twosome of Ed Polite Jr. and Travis Fields Jr. scored 13 points apiece with Polite Jr. hauling in 13 rebounds with Carlik Jones adding 12 points and another eleven rebounds. So we knew they're a good team, so they're going to make shots. Donald Hicks gave Radford eleven points while Devonnte Holland chipped in with nine points.

And when Holland picked up fouls, Darius Bolstad, who didn't play in the Big South Conference tournament, made the most of his short time with a basket that pushed the lead back to nine halfway through the second half.

"I thought they did a nice job grinding it out on the offensive end of the floor and taking time off the clock to where we couldn't get moving." L.I.U. Each team committed 15 turnovers. The redshirt senior and junior, respectively, overwhelmed their top-seeded rivals in Wagner with 52 points on 64.3 percent shooting in their title-game victory.
