Radford University fans celebrate after big victory in NCAA Tournament

Joe Santoliquito  For PhillyVoiceVillanova players react as their seeding is unveiled on Selection Sunday

Fields, a sophomore from Portsmouth, came off the bench to score in double figures for the third straight game and tied a season-high with 13 points.

One of the downfalls of earning a top seed (although deep down there's no REAL reason to complain) is the chance of having to face off against the victor of one of the play in games, which was exactly the case for Villanova.

Jones led the way and flirted with a triple-double (12 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists), while Ed Polite Jr. added a double-double with 13 points and 13 boards.

STREAKERS: Radford has won its last seven games.

Long Island Brooklyn stayed within striking distance for much of the game and got to within a point with five minutes left, but a 9-1 surge by the Highlanders allowed them to close it out.

The fantasy football impact of Kirk Cousins potentially joining the Vikings
But if it eventually happens, the day Cousins signed with the Vikings could be remembered as the moment that changed it all. He played two years on the franchise tag and entered unrestricted free agency with maximum negotiation power.

It's a dream start for head coach Derek Kellog, who is in his first year as Blackbirds head coach after nine seasons at UMass.

"I thought (Radford) did a nice job grinding it out on the offensive end of the floor and taking time off the clock to where we couldn't get moving". 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.

Radford: At times the Highlanders looked like they didn't want it, either, but they played better in the second half on the back of Jones.

LIU Brooklyn's Jashaun Agosto (3) lays up a shot during the first half of a First Four game of the NCAA Tournament at UD Arena on March 13, 2018 in Dayton, Ohio. Averaging 20.9 points per game during the season, Hernandez was just 3 for 11, including 1 for 5 from the 3-point line. He had 32 in their championship game and just willed their team. "And we just tried to make it tough on him". Villanova was previously a No. 1 seed in the Minneapolis Region in 2006 and in the East Region in 2015 and 2017.
