At 7.00 NU up 19-10 . NU looking good in the first half when forcing the ball inside. Kratholm may be having the best half of his career . Hammond not hitting his 3 pt shots. Team taking too many 3s.

Glad I don't have ESPN+ as this sounds like a candidate for ugliest game of the year award.
NU at half 28-20.
First to 60 wins.
Imagine when Hammond and others start scoring in 2nd half!

NU is up 28-20 at half. Leading almost the entire half by 7 or 10. Shooting is bad for both teams. NU is 0-7 for 3s. NU is playing very good defense but concerned that Marist can not shoot that bad in the 2nd half.

NU up by 16 @ the 12 minute break. Roberts & Soloman are keys hitting 3s in the 2nd. Jones of Marist now dominating inside But he can’t hit his FTs.

NU up by 12 at 7 minutes. Marist is playing better. Hammond is doing nothing so we are lucky. Go back to feeding Kratholm inside or let Robert’s fly the 3. Good defense will be a key since Marist is looking more confident.

NU has given M two every foul so this may be a FT contest at the end.

Three minutes and getting tight. Too many of these type games in NU history. NU has lost its mojo. No rhythm on offense with desperation 3s not falling. Work the damn ball inside and resume playing tight defense.

Yes NU wins 67-62. I know why many older NU alums have given up watching basketball games. NU missed 3-4 FTs in last 50 seconds in one stretch . Soloman keys victory with 2 FTs at the end Hammond loses an inbound with 7 secs. One must have a strong heart.
