It was the Travis Fields, Jr., show in the second half as the sophomore guard from Portsmouth (Norcom High School) scored 10 of his 13 points after halftime.

The NCAA Tournament gets underway tonight with the "First Four" in Dayton.

Radford didn't play its prettiest game, but the team from rural southwest Virginia will celebrate briefly before heading to Pittsburgh to play No. 1 seed Villanova on Thursday.

Jones led the way and flirted with a triple-double (12 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists), while Ed Polite Jr. added a double-double with 13 points and 13 boards.

Christian Bradford #3 of the Radford Highlanders handles the ball on offense against the Long Island Blackbirds during the second half of the First Four game in the 2018 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at UD Arena on March 13, 2018 in Dayton, Ohio. Hicks picked up his fourth foul with nine minutes remaining in the game with Radford up 53-46.

Browns Reportedly Making 'A Big Run' At Nate Solder
As Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com noted, Thomas, 33, has yet to inform the Browns if he will play in 2018 or retire. Teams across the league are using the in-between period to pursue the Patriots' unrestricted free agents.

Despite hitting just 7 of 23 shots from the floor in the second half, LIU Brooklyn managed to stay within striking distance, even taking the lead briefly early in the second half.

A Devonnte Holland put-back off a missed shot stretched the lead to 9 points with a little over a minute left and the game was pretty much over from there on out. "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: Got hot in the NEC Tournament but couldn't sustain it on the big stage, shooting just 38 percent compared to 47.5 percent for Radford. In 34 games this year, the Teaneck, NJ native is averaging 20.9 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. "We knew we weren't going to shut him out".

The game was played with all the intensity of an NCAA Championship game. The Highlanders scheduled a fairly hard nonconference slate, losing to three Power-5 and Nevada, which earned a No. 7 seed in the NCAA tournament.

LIU Brooklyn: On to next season.
