The Harvard Crimson and the Northeastern Huskies meet in college basketball action from Matthews Arena on Wednesday night.
The Harvard Crimson will look to build on their 92-77 win over Elon last time out. Evan Nelson led the Crimson with 23 points on 8 of 12 shooting with 4 threes and a team-high 6 assists and 3 steals while Luka Sakota added 14 points on 4 of 6 shooting with a pair of triples. Sam Silverstein added 13 points with 8 rebounds and 4 assists and Idan Tretout added 12 points on 4 of 5 shooting. Chris Ledlum added 10 points with his team-high 10 rebounds to match for the double-double and to cap off the scoring in double figures for Harvard in the winning effort.
The Northeastern Huskies will be out to bounce back from an 89-65 loss to Providence last time out. Coleman Stucke led the Huskies with 17 points on 6 of 12 shooting with 5 threes while Chase Cormier and Jahmyl Telfort each had 11 points toc ap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Northeastern in the loss, with Cormier shooting 3 of 4 with a pair of threes and a team-high 4 assists. Harold Woods also added a team-high 6 rebounds as well for the Huskies in the win.
Harvard is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 5-20-1 ATS in their last 26 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games following a win. Northeastern is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games following a loss by 20 or more points while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record.
It’s hard to really get a feel for this game, as Harvard’s got a couple of wins under their belt including one against an average Elon team, while Northeastern’s 0-2 but against the tougher schedule. I’m leaning the Huskies’ way here, as the home team’s covered 6 of the last 7 meetings between these two teams. Otherwise, I’m probably staying away from this one on Wednesday.
