ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I might take a stab on Northeastern here. Probably not going near it, though. If nothing else, we should have a competitive matchup. The last time these teams met up back on December 31, the Seawolves posted a 65-61 win at Matthews Arena. Northeastern had a bad first half in that one, notching just 22 points. Judging by how both teams have been playing, this rematch is probably going to look similar total-wise. That said I like Northeastern to gather themselves and get a revenge performance in the books on Thursday. Should be a fun one.
