Great to see Sullivan go off from a scoring standpoint. We’re much better when he’s shooting with confidence. And with him, it’s mostly about confidence. Really nice game from Kam Gibson on both ends as well. Penn and Robin did a great job getting into the paint, although I think we could have done more of that.
Defensively, I thought we gave up position to de Graaf and Diakite too deep in the paint, but they didn’t really capitalize on it as much as they could have. If teams are paying attention, they should be able to catch us in bad matchups off of switches because we’re so small. But otherwise it was solid and we did nice job of team rebounding. Sullivan had a good game for NJIT, but he had to work for most of it.
We remain undefeated against league opponents that don’t play defense (Bryant and NJIT). The road games have been a different story though, so this game with Binghamton will be telling. It’s typically not been an easy trip historically. We’ve won most of them but it seems to always be a slog, and the teams are better matched this year than in the past.
