2018 NCAA tournament preview: No. 16 LIU Brooklyn

The 11th-seeded Bonnies (26-7) will play sixth-seeded Florida (20-12) in Dallas on Thursday night in the East Region.

BOTTOM LINE: Northeast Conference Tournament victor LIU-Brooklyn makes its first appearance in the tournament in five years. The victor of the game faces Villanova Thursday in Pittsburgh. There's handwringing at times, but with a steady lead over LIU-Brooklyn, worries turn to cheers and fans got on their feet high-fiving one another.

Radford went up early and held the lead for almost the entirety of the first half (19:17 minutes).

It was a historic victory for the Highlanders, who won an NCAA tournament game for the first time in school history by beating a fellow 16 seed in the play-in round.

Three players are averaging at least 7.9 points per game for Radford, they are Polite Jr. But 'Nova won its last five games as Wright settled on an eight-man rotation featuring a heavy reliance on his starters and DiVincenzo.

Amazon and Walmart expected to gain from Toys R Us closing
There's no official date on when Toys "R" Us closes. -2005: The company is bought by three private equity firms and taken private. Etoys went bankrupt in 2001, just two years after the online toy retailer went public in 1999 during the peak of dot com mania.

The Highlanders, winners of the Big South tournament, dropped to 0-3 all-time in the NCAA Tournament with all three defeats coming against No. 1 seeds. The over/under for total points scored is 139, 79.3% have picked the over. The first half of the game was fairly paced however, as the box score read the same except for Radford shooting 52.0 percent compared to LIU's 44.4 percent. They are +500 favorites to win a second national championship in three seasons and +125 in the East.

The Blackbirds got within a point with five minutes remaining before the Highlanders went on a 9-1 run.

However, college basketball is known as a game of runs, and Radford answered with a 14-2 run of their own. The First Four has added to challenge for whichever two No. 16 seeds advance from there as they have a quick turnaround game with little preparation and having to travel. Radford is led by Ed Polite Jr. The shot was the 12th 3-pointer of the game and the 400th of the season for the Wildcats.

Hicks led Radford with 13 points. Check out OddsShark on Twitter and Instagram or head to YouTube for more betting picks and analysis on this week's top games.

JoJo Cooper scored seven points and grabbed four rebounds, but he was held to just one assist against four turnovers.

In my March Madness region previews, I have projected No. 4 Arizona to come out of the South Region, which looks to be the toughest, and No. 4 Gonzaga to come out of the West, which looks to be the easiest.
