The Blackbirds scored 11 of their points on nine turnovers by Radford but were just 3 for 13 from beyond the 3-point line in the half.

Labeled as a "First Four" matchup, the victor of this game will be rewarded with the No. 16 seed in the East Regional bracket and meet No. 1 Villanova. March Madness will officially be underway when LIU-Brooklyn and Radford, two No. 16 seeds clash for the right to play No. 1 seed Villanova in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

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.

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. Coming out of an LIU time-out the Donald Hicks show continued as Hicks hit a three coming out of the time-out and followed it up with a driving basket and all of the sudden Radford had grabbed a 49-42 lead halfway through the second half.

Trump floats the idea of a U.S. military "Space Force"
However, that's not happening anytime soon. "We have the army, the navy ..." We are going to lead the way in space. Trump's space policy will replace former President Obama's, which did not include a goal to return to the Moon.

Travis Fields Jr. shot 5 of 6 from the field, including three 3-pointers from as many attempts to finish with 13 points as well off the bench in the win.

"I know since we're playing in an Atlantic-10 arena we'll have a lot of fan support, not just from the Bonnies but from the Dayton people". The Northeast Conference champion Blackbirds got to within a point with five minutes left, but a 9-1 surge by the Highlanders opened up the lead. Radford shot the ball well at 47.5% which was an easy victor versus the 38% accuracy of the Blackbirds. Radford won 71-61 and will advance on to the next round of the tournament. Radford also held Blackbirds' leading scorer Joel Hernandez to eight points, 12 below his season averaged of 20 ppg.
