Villanova 92 NJIT 67

The campus community is still excited over the upset win a few weeks ago against #17 ranked Michigan.  Today the Highlanders went to Philadelphia to play the undefeated and #7 ranked Villanova Wildcats.  Could lightning strike twice in the same season?  The Highlanders were quite competitive as they took a 44-41 lead at halftime.  The TV commentator even said the score was surprising.  Early in the second half the Highlanders actually had at 7 point lead as I could sense another possible upset.  At that point Villanova went on a 20-3 run and pulled ahead.

The game was on Fox Sports1 as I saw Athletic Director Lenny Kaplan in the stands.  My hope is that NJIT can get into a conference for the 2015-16 season.
