Fifth Third Arena

The Bearcats (4-3, KenPom #74) welcome NJIT (1-5, KenPom #331) this evening to start a stretch of 7 consecutive home games that will lead the team into 2023.

The Highlanders are the first of back-to-back America East Conference opponents to visit Fifth Third (with first place Bryant being the next) and are led by 7th-year head coach Brian Kennedy.

NJIT returns three starters from last year's team that finished 11-18 and #342 in KenPom. Their top returnee is 5th-year 6'5 forward Miles Coleman who averages 18 and 5 while shooting nearly 44% from deep.

As a team, they struggle to shoot the ball, but have played competitively in some of their recent losses by playing slow (currently #332 in Adjusted Tempo) and keeping the game low-scoring.

Once Bearcat-recruit Paul McMillan IV is the first man off the bench for NJIT and is averaging 5.4 ppg, 1.6 rpg, 2.0 apg over 20 min/game. He shoots 28% from the field, 11% from 3 (1-9) and 92% from the FT line (12-13).

The Bearcats are 19-point favorites.
