Northeastern started off on a 6-4 run this year, then hit a losing streak that lasted from December 12 to February 3. The Huskies are 2-1 in their last three games though, with both of the wins coming over William & Mary. 

In the Saturday tournament game versus William & Mary, the Huskies had a low-scoring 18-17 first half, then ended up needing overtime to power out a 68-63 win. Chris Toherty led the team on his 26 points and six rebounds. 

Over on the Towson side, they’ve been impressively consistent this season and haven’t yet lost consecutive games. Towson is on a seven-game win streak over William & Mary, Elon, UNCW, Charleston, James Madison (twice) and Delaware right now. 

On Monday versus Delaware, the Tigers were down 27-38 at halftime. Towson surged on a 42-19 second-half run to take a 69-57 comeback victory. Topping the scorers was Charles Thompson on 15 points and nine rebounds. 

Towson is 6-14-1 ATS in their last 21 neutral-site games and 14-6 ATS in their last 20 after an ATS win. Meanwhile, Northeastern is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Sunday games and 5-16 ATS in their last 21 overall. 

PICK: I’m probably going to stay with Towson here. The Tigers are on a nice run over this seven-game win streak; they’ve hit 69 or more points in each game. Even in their infrequent losses Towson has been close. The Tigers’ last three defeats have each come by five points or fewer. 

As for Northeastern, they lost 70-67 the first time these teams met up and won 58-53 in the rematch, so they could make things difficult for Towson. We should have an interesting matchup here, but I like Towson a little better on a potential cover.
