The Northeastern Huskies go on the road to oppose the Elon Phoenix in CAA college basketball.
The Northeastern Huskies have begun their conference schedule 0-2 after a 75-72 defeat at Hofstra on Saturday as a 4.5 point road dog.
Northeastern was balanced with Bolden Brice netting 17 points and handing out five assists followed by a 14 point effort from Jordan Roland.
Shawn Occeus gave the Huskies 13 points, five boards and four blocks while Vasa Pusica added eleven points and five helpers.
The Elon Phoenix fell to 0-2 in the Colonial after a 77-65 loss at Delaware on Saturday as a 7.5 point underdog.
Elon trailed by eight heading to the locker room and never made a run with Delaware holding a 48.9%-43.3% edge in marksmanship along with a 20-5 advantage at the line.
Steven Santa Ana was the top threat for the Phoenix with 18 points and five pulls while Tyler Seibring added 17 points and three yanks.
Elon saw eleven points, six rebounds and four helpers from Sheldon Eberhardt followed by Nathan Priddy with ten points and five boards.
Northeastern Huskies are 1-4-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall and over is 7-3 in Huskies last 10 overall. Elon Phoenix are 17-36 ATS in their last 53 games overall and Elon Phoenix are 5-16 ATS in their last 21 vs. Colonial Athletic Association and Elon Phoenix are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games. Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and road team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
My theory here is Northeastern can not afford a third loss in conference play this early in the season…
