NJIT gets ninth road win, stymies Stetson in 2nd half, 82-59

DELAND, Fla. (AP) Zach Cooks scored 16 points and NJIT picked up its ninth road win of the season by beating Stetson, 82-59 in an Atlantic Sun game Thursday night.

The Highlanders now have won three straight and nine of their last 12. Stetson remains winless through six conference games.

NJIT took a 38-32 lead at intermission after holding Stetson scoreless over the final 2:48 of the first half, then held the Hatters without a field goal until Keith Matthews hit a jumper with 13:11 left in the game. Stetson managed just 27 second-half points.

Donovan Greer had 14 points off the bench for NJIT (16-5, 4-2 ASUN), which shot 30 for 50 (60 percent) from the field, including 12 of 22 from distance.

Christiaan Jones finished with 10 points to pace Stetson (4-17, 0-6) but was the lone scorer to reach double figures.

The Highlanders are off to their best start since the program opened the season 13-1 in 1994-95 and advanced to the NCAA Division III Elite Eight.
