Last year it was VCU and their road to Final 4. This year it’s HBCU, Norfolk State University Spartans.
Corralled by Queens native Kyle O’Quinn’s double-double of 26 and 14, the Spartans gave the Tigers a 1 way ticket back home. Despite missing 2 crucial free throws in the last few seconds of the 2nd half, NSU’s front court killed the Tigers on the boards (35-23). Both teams shot pretty well, but this was clearly a game that was decidedly won on the defensive end.
Whatever’s in the water down in VA, the rest of us need to get hip. Because….dayum!
