The Northeastern Huskies are shooting 38.6 percent from beyond the arc and 75.3 percent from the free throw line. The Northeastern Huskies are allowing 33.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.3 rebounds per game. The Northeastern Huskies have won five of their last seven road games.
The Drexel Dragons need a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Drexel Dragons are averaging 76.6 points on 46.2 percent shooting and allowing 77.1 points on 48 percent shooting. Troy Harper is averaging 15.8 points and 3.2 rebounds while Alihan Demir is averaging 14.6 points and 2.9 assists.

The Drexel Dragons are allowing 37.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.4 rebounds per game. The Drexel Dragons have won five of their last eight home games.
The Huskies are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Saturday games, 11-4 ATS in their last 15 vs. Colonial Athletic Association and 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Dragons are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 home games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Huskies are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the underdog is 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings. The under is 6-2 in Dragons last 8 overall. The over is 19-7 in Huskies last 26 road games.
The home team has won seven of the last nine meetings between Northeastern and Drexel, and the Dragons were competitive when they met back in December, covering the 11.5-point line and shooting 50 percent from the field. The Drexel Dragons are 10-4 ATS this season at home, which includes six straight covers. The Northeastern Huskies have had road success this season, but they're only winning by an average of 2.5 points and can be shaky at times defensively. It's also the last home game for Drexel, so you know the three seniors want to go out on top. I'll take a shot with the points.
