My Player of the Game
Scottie James  
 
Overall Game Analysis
Liberty was a different team without James on the floor. When he is there, he gives them low post scoring options and opens it up for the rest of the team. Without him, the team was forcing more shots from outside and sloppy. Defensively, NJIT was able to penetrate without Scottie James in the game. So even thos Baxter-Bell and others were able to collapse, ut NJIT was still able to get inside on them and keep it close.

Comments On Offense
Liberty was able to hit free throws! They were spotty from outside and their inside game suffered without James on the floor. Without James, they did not really know where they wanted to go with the ball. They became prone to mistakes.

Comments On Defense
NJIT gave them a good run. They were getting penetration and also open looks from outside. Liberty was fortunate that enough of them just did not fall...
