Final NU 68-51 with good balance from nine scorers.
Helps as we play again at 4pm Saturday in what I expect will be much more contested game.
Players not in the game today: Syroka, Engelhardt,Levnaic, Hill and Traore.
Anyone know more?
FG% NU 46.2 V 28.1
TO's NU 7 v 11
Points off TO's NU 15-4

Tuned in at 5:30 Pm thinking of a 5pm start. Oh well.
Citron appears to be a very good addition.
NU foul shooting better improve or it will bite them. Coach Paulus sure is using a lot of players. Some guys are not going to be happy if they revert to a typical 7/8 man rotation.

Paulus doesn't give a ton of information out, but he has said that Levnaic is going to miss some time. I could be wrong, but I feel like I remember seeing a picture of him in some sort of cast or brace over the summer.

Hill, Traore and Solomon are all nursing minor lower-body injuries, per Paulus. Hill was in streets; Traore dressed but did not play; Solomon played 9 minutes off the bench.

With Cintron in the mix and Nwandu establishing himself as a big-minutes guy, I'd be shocked if we see a ton of the freshmen this year.

Game #2. This is a very well played game by both teams. Far different team than what St. Pete’s. Ed NU up at half by 3.
Kobi of NU can not be stopped by Fairfield. I would get him the ball on every possession. NU is almost distributing the ball too much.
