Verona came into the contest off strong wins over Science Park and Newark Collegiate, but trailed for the first three periods against the Lancers. The Hillbillies outscored Livingston 17-7 in the fourth, but it wasn’t enough to close the gap.

Nicholas Gonzalez led Verona with 17 points, including five three-pointers. Gonzalez is having a strong season for the Hillbillies, leading the team with 97 points over 11 games. Pierce Coppola and Derek Jocelyn had 10 points apiece against Livingston.
