If NU keeps on shooting 60 percent from the floor it’s not gunna matter if they can’t rebound. Roberts is playing well with big points from Kauk and Towns.

Cruz and Talerfero have 2 points between them in the first stanza. If this continues , we will prevail. NU is doing a great job keeping these 2 in check.

I thought NU played great defense in the first half .Constantly moving their feet to get in position for some charging calls. On one play, Towns quickly moved between a blocker and the player with the ball rather than sliding behind. The offensive player had to use his arm to get to his spot and was called for a charge. I do not think I have seen an NU player play with this type of defensive intensity in many years. Nu actually used a walk on for a few minutes in the half. NU's size is still a problem anytime Fairfield gets the ball down low but the effort is there for NU.

Despite our size issues, when was the last time this team played with any defensive intensity ? Been a very long time .

Points in the paint and rebounding don’t matter because Solo and Mac are shooting the lights out !!!!

Despite defensive intensity not a single Niagara player has more than 2 fouls with 7 minutes left. Up by 14 under 5 to go.

Boy, GP seems to be pressing all the buttons late in this game. NU is playing a very smart disciplined game at all levels . A real team effort tonight. We had 38 bench points ! Talerfero was averaging 16 pts a game , he scored 30 against Texas AM had one basket. As Philly said a great defensive effort on the Stags leading scorers .

Final 75-66 Niagara wins. Not a single basket but several free throws over the last 5 minutes.
