Best Performers Of The Day (22nd March)
Belmont was in need of a big second-half performance in order to advance in the tournament, and Kevin McClain stepped up with a dominant offensive display. The 22-year-old guard finished with a game-high 29 points, connecting with nearly 60% of his attempts from the field.
In the earlier game, Senior FDU guard Darnell Edge stood out as he dropped 33 points, connecting with 7 of his 9 shots from beyond the arc. Edge also added a couple of rebounds and assists, as his performance inspired Fairleigh Dickinson to their first win in tournament history.
