Line: W&M -2.5

Total: 155

William & Mary suffered their first conference loss, falling at home to Towson, 99-73. The Huskies are coming off a hard-fought 81-77 win over UNCW in overtime from Wilmington on Saturday. Last year, the Tribe crushed Northeastern at home, 94-69 and lost by 20 on the road, 84-64.

Huskies blow lead in regulation, win in OT over Seahawks

After the first three minutes, Northeastern led the entire game against UNC Wilmington. They led 68-65 with one second to play before Devon Begley fouled the Seahawks’ Ty Taylor beyond the three-point line, and he made all three to send it to overtime. They did trail by two in overtime before Shawn Occeus took over. He scored four in overtime and 15 points in the game for the Huskies. Tomas Murphy scored a career-best 17 points off the bench. Northeastern shot 52.8 percent from the field and 8-of-24 (33.3%) from beyond the arc but turned it over 17 times. They held UNCW to 44.8 percent shooting and 5-of-18 from beyond the arc.

Vasa Pusica leads the Huskies in scoring with 15.5 points per game and 4.3 assists on 50.9 percent shooting (42.7% 3pt). He struggled against UNCW with four turnovers, despite scoring 12 points and dishing out five assists. He has 62 turnovers in 18 games. On the season, Northeastern averages 72.6 points per game on 47.2 percent shooting (35.7% 3pt). They allow 69.3 points per game on 46.2 percent shooting (31.3% 3pt).

Tribe can’t stop Tigers

William & Mary jumped out to an early 13-point lead against Towson and then the Tigers went crazy. They scored 49 points in the first half to go up six at the half and then outscored the Tribe by 20 in the second half. The Tribe was red-hot in the first half, but in the second, made just 9-of-23 overall and 1-of-10 from beyond the arc. Their bigger issue was on the defensive side of the ball as Towson made 13-of-22 from beyond the arc (59%) and placed six players in double figures. William & Mary was led by Nathan Knight, who had 22 points, while senior guard David Cohn added 20, but just two points after halftime.

On the season, Knight leads the Tribe with 20 points per game and adds 8.0 rebounds on 54.9 percent shooting. Matt Millon adds 14.6 points on 49.5 percent 3-point shooting. Coh is third in scoring with 14 points per game, leads in assists with 6.5 per game, shoots 55.4 percent from the field and 45.2 percent from 3-point range. On offense, William & Mary ranks 14th in points per game (86.4ppg), eighth in field goal percentage (51%), second in three-point shooting (44.5%) and first in free throw percentage (81.9%). On defense, they are near the bottom of points allowed per game (80.3ppg), field goal percentage defense (47.9%) and three-point defense (34.3%).

NCAAB Trends:

Northeastern is:

  • 2-6 ATS last 8 road games.
  • Road team is 2-6 ATS last 8 in this series.

W&M is:

  • 19-6-2 ATS last 27 after a DD loss at home.
  • 9-3-1 ATS last 13 home games.
  • 33-16-3 ATS last 52 after a SU loss.

William & Mary is 4-1 ATS their last 5 at home against Northeastern. Head coach Tony Shaver can’t be happy with his team, not only losing to Towson by 26, but needed a dramatic comeback to beat James Madison in the previous game. The Huskies will be headed to a buzzstorm in Williamsburg.
