NCAA First Four: LIU Brooklyn vs. Radford

NCAA First Four: LIU Brooklyn vs. Radford

Radford then responded with nine unanswered points topped off by a three-pointer by Travis Fields Jr. that gave Radford a 44-38 with 13:39 left in the game.

St. Bonaventure has a fairly proud tradition for a program that has not won an NCAA tournament game since Bob Lanier led the Bonnies to the 1970 Final Four. The victor of the game faces Villanova Thursday in Pittsburgh.

"Everybody's shocked because nobody believed in us but Radford", Highlanders junior forward Ed Polite Jr. told reporters.

STREAKERS: Radford has won its last seven games. "I thought it had something to do with it, but I wouldn't say that that was the end-all-be-all to why we came out on the losing end". LIU Brooklyn coach Derek Kellogg said. Coming out of an LIU time-out the Donald Hicks show continued as Hicks hit a three coming out of the time-out and followed it up with a driving basket and all of the sudden Radford had grabbed a 49-42 lead halfway through the second half.

Radford: At times the Highlanders looked like they didn't want it, either, but they played better in the second half on the back of Jones, who had seven assists to go with his double-double.

The Highlanders' defense helped limit LIU Brooklyn's leading scorer, Joel Hernandez, to just eight points. In 34 games this year, the Teaneck, NJ native is averaging 20.9 points and 5.9 rebounds per game.

"He's so strong and he can score in a variety of ways", Radford coach Mike Jones said. He had 32 in their championship game and just willed their team.

No team in NCAA history has ever knocked off a No. 1 seed in the big dance, and while there's a good chance that Villanova will have little trouble getting by Radford when seeing how the two teams compare on paper, Wright knows his team can't afford to have this kind of mindset.
