Brooklyn looked to pick up where they left off Monday. Unfortunately Independence had other ideas. With starting PG Ray Cogburn out to injury, Brooklyn struggled from the get-go on both ends of the floor, getting outscored 17 – 4 in the first quarter, and 38 – 11 by halftime.
The ‘Canes just could not match the Blue Devil’s intensity. Brooklyn struggled with pressure and were forced into numerous turnovers. Chris Wilkowski led the ‘Canes with 10 including two three pointers and making both free throws.
