Northeastern managed a 6-4 run over their first 10 games. The losses came to Colgate, Georgia State, Colorado State and Harvard. Since then it’s been a three-game losing streak for the Huskies versus Davidson, Elon and William & Mary. 

In the William & Mary matchup back on December 31, the Huskies had a 37-32 lead at halftime. Northeastern couldn’t keep up in the second during an eventual 71-70 loss. Jahmyl Telfort led the team on 21 points, and Nikola Djogo added 16 points. 

Over on the Tigers’ side, their first 10 games were a 6-4 run as well. The Tigers lost to Monmouth, Pitt, San Francisco and Ohio State. After a three-game win streak, Towson lost to Drexel back on Monday. 

Matched up against the Dragons in their last game, the Tigers were outscored 36-32 in the second half during a 65-61 loss. Charles Thompson put up 18 points with six boards, and both Cameron Holden and Terry Nolan added 14 points apiece. 

The Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last five at home and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 overall. The over is 16-7 in Towson’s last 23 at home. 

Meanwhile, the Huskies are 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine road games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games. The over is 5-0 in Northeastern’s last five overall. 

PICK: I’m going to take a stab on Towson here. It’s a pretty thick line for this matchup, though. The Tigers are coming off a tepid effort against Drexel, but in each of their previous seven games they’d hit 69 or more points. Northeastern hasn’t been scoring too badly themselves though, with 69 or more points in four of their last five. Still, if Towson can get off to a good start in this one, I think they’ll be okay on the cover. Should be a pretty good matchup overall.
