Joe Chealey is averaging 18.1 points and 3.7 assists while Grant Riller is averaging 18.4 points and 2.7 rebounds.

The Cougars are 18-50-1 ATS in their last 69 games following a ATS win and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 neutral site games. The Huskies are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The over is 7-2 in Cougars last 9 overall and the under is 6-1 in Huskies last 7 overall.
The Charleston Cougars have won both meetings this season against Northeastern, but it's tough to beat a team three times in one season and the Huskies head into this game in much better defensive form. We know both teams can score, but putting together three or four stops in a row may be the difference. Give me the free bucket.
