go The Huskies dropped another close Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) contest Saturday when UNC Wilmington guard T.J. Carter hit a pull-up jumper as the clock expired, giving the host Seahawks a 46-44 victory. Bobby Kelly had just tied the game with a three-pointer, but it was in vain as the Huskies now find themselves 11-8 overall (7-4 CAA).

go site NU didn’t have a single player score in double digits and turned the ball over 19 times. Senior Jose Juan Barea statistically had the worst game of his career, scoring five points on 2-of-12 shooting.

source “By turning the ball over 19 times, our scoring opportunities were seriously limited,” head coach Ron Everhart said.

follow site Northeastern squandered a nine-point halftime lead on the road. However, they lost at the buzzer and played in front of 6,100 fans at a sold-out Trask Coliseum in Wilmington, N.C.

source link Believe it or not, their shooting woes didn’t cost them the game, as the Seahawks (16-6, 9-2 CAA) had an even worse day from the field, hitting a miserable 28.4 percent of their field goal attempts. The glaring difference is the turnovers. NU had 19, while the Seahawks gave away possession just seven times. Northeastern is now 3-6 on the road this year with four more games scheduled away from Matthews Arena, including two more Thursday-Saturday road trips, in which the Huskies have one day off in between two road games.

كيف تتاجر بسوق الاسهم Thursday was the first game of their two-game road swing and the Huskies got a nice present: the 5-14 Georgia State Panthers (2-9 CAA). NU defeated the Panthers, 68-54. James finished just shy of his third career triple-double, with 12 points, 15 rebounds and seven blocked shots.
