FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- — Ty Flowers scored 20 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as Long Island-Brooklyn routed Sacred Heart 75-55 on Wednesday in a long-delayed start to the season.
LIU Brooklyn had not played a game until Wednesday. Sacred Heart kicked off Nov. 24 against Rutgers but has had seven postponements or cancellations since.
The game was the Northeast Conference opener for both and, given a season being shaped by COVID-19, meet again Thursday night.
Aaron Clarke, the Pioneers’ leading scorer entering the matchup at 17.0 points per game, was held to only 6 points on 2-of-11 shooting. Sacred Heart was 31% shooting, making 18 of 58 shots.
