The Northeastern Huskies and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets meet in college basketball action from the McCamish Pavilion on Friday night.
The Northeastern Huskies will look to rebound from a 56-54 loss to Princeton in their last game. Jahmyl Telfort leads the Huskies in scoring and assists with 15.8 PPG and 2.2 APG as the lone double-digit scorer for Northeastern up to this point in the season. Colman Stucke has 9.3 PPG while Alexander Nwagha has a team-high 6 RPG to lead the Huskies on the glass up to this point in the season. As a team, Northeastern is averaging 61.3 PPG on 38.5% shooting from the field, 29.6% from behind the arc and 58.1% from the foul line this season.
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will try to bounce back from an 81-65 loss to Iowa last time out. Miles Kelly leads the Yellow Jackets in scoring with 12.6 PPG while Dallas Coleman has 11.4 PPG and Deivon Smith has 10.7 PPG with 6.3 RPG and a team-high 3.3 APG to lead the Yellow Jackets in the assist department and to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Georgia Tech up to this point in the year. Javon Franklin also has 9 PPG and a team-high 7.3 RPG to lead the Yellow Jackets on the glass this season. As a team, Georgia Tech is averaging 69.9 PPG on 41.6% shooting from the field, 29.9% from behind the arc and 69.2% from the foul line this season.
Northeastern is 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games against a team with a winning home record while the over is 7-0 in their last 7 games following a loss. Georgia Tech is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss while the under is 6-0 in their last 6 games overall.
I get the case to be made for either side in this game, but I’m looking at Georgia Tech here. The Yellow Jackets haven’t been a team I’ve been overly eager to lay double-digits with in the past, but at home they’ve been strong to start the year and Northeastern’s struggled in spots on the road this season. I’ll side with Georgia Tech in this one.
