The Northeastern Huskies finished their regular season with an overall record of 15-15 and earned the 6-seed in the CAA Championship with a 9-9 conference record. Northeastern lost to Towson by a 75-72 margin last Sunday, however, the Huskies are playing well entering the CAA Tournament as they’ve won 4 of their last 6 games which included an impressive 65-51 victory over the 4-seed Charleston Cougars. Northeastern went 0-4 agianst the top two seeds in Hofstra & William & Mary on the season, however, the Huskies clearly demonstrated that they have the talented to beat anyone in the conference as those 4 losses came by an average of just 2.3 ppg.

The Towson Tigers finished the regular season with an overall record of 19-12 and earned the 3-seed in the CAA Championship with an impressive 12-6 conference record. Towson has a slow start to conference play, dropping their first three games of the season, however, Towson was outstanding the rest of the way highlighted by an 11-point victory against the top-seed Hofstra Pride less than two weeks ago. Hofstra is a talented defensive team that even gave the Florida Gators all they could handle early in the season in a 66-60 loss in mid-November.

Northeastern comes into this game ranked 158th in scoring offense, 20th in FG%, and 103rd in scoring defense.

Towson comes into this game ranked 188th in scoring offense, 86th in scoring defense, and 58th in defensive FG%.

Northeastern, despite being the 6-seed, is primed to make a run in the CAA Tournament as they have an explosive offense and one of the best players in the CAA in Jordan Roland. Towson is a solid team with a great defense, however, the Huskies have played well on the road this season and as I think they have enough offense to put up some points against the Tigers, I think Northeastern advances and covers this small spread. Good Luck!
