Men’s basketball

Monmouth 74, NIU 71: At West Long Branch, New Jersey, Jakari Spence banked in a 3-pointer at the buzzer to lift Monmouth to the win.

Xavier Amos and Zarique Nutter each had 21 for the Huskies, with Amos grabbing 11 boards for his first career double-double. David Coit added 15 for the Huskies (5-4), who turned the ball over 15 times in the game and seven times in the second half.

“We did a poor job of ball security in the second half,” NIU head coach Rashon Burno said. “This is a learning process for us and yet again we gave up 42% from 3-[point range]. Amos did his best with 21 [points] and 11 [rebounds], but we have to get stops. We didn’t get stops, and they did. We shot 2 for 10 from 3 [in the second half] and only 46% from the free-throw line.”

Keshawn Williams, who came off the bench in his first action since last season against Indiana State earlier this week, did not play Saturday.
