NAIA AND NJCAA3 BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT SCORES MARCH 16TH

 If you missed it in the NAIA’s late game last night the unseeded SUNO Knights upset the 3rd- seeded Robert Morris (IL) Eagles 94-92! Trailing by 11 points with just 9 minutes left the Knights, playing in their first tournament since 2004, stayed focused and Kevin Dukes drove home a fadeaway jumper with just 3.9 seconds left in the game to give SUNO (Southern University at New Orleans) the win. Congratulations to the Knights for the upset of the tournament so far!

Meanwhile round two tips off this morning at 10am ET with the Evangel Crusaders (logo above left) taking on the Rogers State University Hillcats. All this plus the semifinals in the NJCAA3 tournament.
