The evening started off with a pre-game “senior night” specifically for 2-time National Champion, 2018 AP Player of the Year, and now-NBA star for Dallas Mavericks, Jalen Brunson.  The home crowd let Jalen know they appreciate all he gave them over the recent years.

But the game itself started slow for Nova, especially in 3-point land.  Later in the game, Gillespie, Phil Booth, and Eric Paschal then led the scoring for Nova later.  Gillespie hit 6-of-11 3-pointers and 83% from the free-throw line.  Paschal tallied 24 points, and Booth had 14 with two 3-pointers.
