Three NIU players scored in double figures, as Northern Illinois beat St. Francis 70-to-60 on Thursday night at the Convocation Center.
Anastasios Demogerontas led the Huskies with 12 points, while Levi Bradley and Eugene German each added eleven; Lacey James had a team-high eight rebounds, with nine points.
But even though they got the win, coach Mark Montgomery says it wasn’t the most impressive performance; Jorden Thorton caught fire for St. Francis, scoring seven three-point shots to keep is close…and Montgomery says it looked like a video game, as he kept hitting from everywhere on the court.
This game was originally scheduled to be played last Friday, but condensation on the court made it unsafe for play.
Now NIU prepares to head to Estero, Florida for three games at the Gulf Coast Showcase; they open against Pennsylvania on Monday.
