Northern Kentucky Lets Early Lead Slip Away In Youngstown

The Norse (6-8) jumped out to an early six-point lead on back-to-back 3-pointers by Tyler White and Deontae Cole, and held on to a one point lead at the half.  Senior guard, Chad Jackson (Scott County, KY) pitched in 16 and Jalen Billups (Shroder Prep, Cincinnati), came off the bench for NKU to add 12 points and 10 rebounds; but it wasn’t enough as Youngstown State (9-6) slid past NKU 74-78.  The Norse finished the game with 5 players in double digit scoring but went 5-13 as a team from the foul line.

The Norse next host Toledo at home on Saturday, 4:00 p.m.
