NU earns sweep of Fairfield

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — “We made some tough baskets and we held off just enough to stop them,” Mihalich said. “A key factor in the game was they are a terrific defensive team and we only committed five turnovers; we’re really proud of that.”

On the other end of the floor, Niagara forced 16 turnovers that were converted into 20 points and held Fairfield under 39 percent from the field.

A week after he scored 31 points and willed the Purple Eagles to a victory at the Gallagher Center, Juan'ya Green was held to a career-low five points by a Stags defense that was determined not to let him or Mason beat them.

"If you would've told me before the game that Juan'ya and Antoine were going to shoot 4 for 22 between the two of them, I'd say we wouldn't have a chance," Mihalich said.

“Our team had an attitude today and we competed like crazy. We had a confidence and competitive nature about ourselves. We dealt with some adversity, but at the end of the day, winners win and our kids figured out how to win.”

Niagara plays next at home Thursday against Siena.
