Out of context, it wasn’t a bad performance for NJIT in a 76-66 loss Friday night at Holy Cross. The Highlanders led for the entire first half and were within striking distance against a Crusader squad that was picked third in the Patriot League (and finished third last season), a conference that has had its […]
Before he was running around the Northeast covering games for Big Apple Buckets, Ray Curren ran around the country for The Mid-Majority (RIP). One of his stops was NJIT. Considering the Highlanders’ victory over Michigan and all the talk that has come from it. We’re re-running his post here today.
