On Saturday, February 16, the team traveled to Ithaca, NY to compete in their first tournament of the year. Teams competing in the tournament included Ithaca College, Brockport, Oswego, St. Bonaventure, and University at Buffalo, Canisius and the host Ithaca College.
NU competed in 16 games and came away with a 2-14 record. Josh Zon was the player of the day for Niagara. Zon made some very athletic offensive plays above the net and he was the scoring punch for Niagara. On the defensive side, Wesley Vance was a stopper on D. Vance established a defensive presence and had over 10 blocks for the day. Reis Gouldrick stepped up as an efficient passer as well as making some outstanding offensive pays. Brendan Decoff was called into action as NU setter and rose to the occasion and did a nice job for the NU strikers.
