Jacksonville defense thwarts NJIT for 63-61 win

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Jace Hogan scored six of his 12 points in the final minutes as the Jacksonville defense thwarted NJIT in the last seconds to hold on for a 63-61 win on Saturday.

Trailing by two in the final thirty seconds, the Highlanders had two chances to tie or win. Zach Cooks was driving for a layup when he lost the ball out of bounds with seven seconds left. NJIT had one last chance following a missed free throw with six seconds remaining. The Dolphins defense smothered NJIT as the Highlanders came down court and they could not get off another shot.

Jacksonville held a 10-point advantage with 8:25 remaining. An Abdul Lewis layup started a 14-4 run to tie it 59-59 at the 3:05 mark.
