NU Sweeps MAAC/ASun Challenge with 66-62 Win Over Stetson

Post by le »

NU gets +1.5 pts per Vegas which equates to a pick'em game. Stetson (3-0) is coming off three impressive wins against UCF, FSU and Rider. Stetson was picked to finish 12th out of 14 teams in the ASUN preseason poll. Central Arky was selected 11th by the coaches.

CBS SPORTS:

"The Niagara Purple Eagles play their second consecutive ASUN opponent on Saturday in the 2022 Dublin Basketball Challenge when they take on the Stetson Hatters at the National Basketball Arena at Tallaght Sports Complex in Dublin, Ireland. The Purple Eagles (1-2) are coming off a 73-64 win over Central Arkansas in Ireland on Friday. Niagara finished tied for fifth in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference at 9-11 and 14-16 overall in 2021-22. The Hatters (3-0), who defeated Rider 78-68 on Friday in Dublin, also have victories over South Florida (68-67) and Florida State (83-74). Stetson finished sixth in the ASUN-East last year at 5-11 and was 11-19 overall.

Tip-off is set for noon ET. This will be the first-ever meeting between the schools. The Hatters are 1.5-point favorites in the latest Niagara vs. Stetson odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over/under for total points scored is set at 128.5."

Watching this one. Early on but Obiaha getting very nice comments by the announcers and he actually has a very nice foul shot. Just hopes he stars at NU during his development.

Moore has 9 and Gray 8 at half.
Thomasson who starred yesterday is scoreless and should be a factor in the 2nd half.

NU leads 31-29 at half. NU looking very good with nice surprises. Shot 4-7 on 3 pointers. Gray and Moore excelling. Thomasson had 3 fouls and no points. A concern is Traore being hurt on the last play of half and had to helped off. NU playing a very good defense against a favorite.

I can’t type. Hoping Obiaha “stays.”
My feed has the live picture at least 1 minute behind the box score at the bottom. I keep cheating to catch a preview of what I am about to watch.!

NU showing Great progress from the first 2 games. Very nice win against a team that defeated Fl. St. to start their season. Thomason had a strong second half and 3 pt shooting finally arrived when needed.
