James Madison jumped out to 22-6 advantage that ballooned into a 40-18 halftime lad. Northeastern stormed back and trailed the visitors, 51-43 with 8:23 remaining before James Madison answered with a 10-3 run that sealed the victory.

NU, Harvard Pick Up Important Road Wins

By Brian Willwerth 

It’s not over yet for the Northeastern men’s basketball team.The Huskies defeated the Tribe from William & Mary last night, 57-49, in the opening round of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament in Richmond, Virginia.

NU, the No. 7 seed, got 18 points from freshman Quincy Ford. Jonathan Lee and Joel Smith added 11 and 10 points, respectively.

Next up for the Huskies is a tough task tonight against No. 2 seed VCU. Game time is 6 p.m. In their only meeting during the regular season, Northeastern dropped a three-point decision to the Rams in Richmond,

It took overtime, but Harvard stayed in good shape to win at least a share of the Ivy League title. The Crimson defeated Columbia last night in OT, 77-70. Harvard remains a half-game ahead of Penn. The Quakers also won last night. Harvard wraps up the regular season tonight at Cornell. In order to win the Ivy League title outright, the Crimson need to win tonight, and have Penn lose one of its remaining two games. If there’s a tie, there’ll be a one-game playoff for the title and NCAA berth.

Boston University takes on Hartford tonight in an America East quarterfinal on the Hawks’ home court. Tip is set for 8:15 p.m. The 3rd-seeded Terriers won both meetings against Hartford during the regular season.

Catching Up With BU, Harvard and Northeastern Men’s Hoops

By Brian Willwerth 

It’s time for our weekly look at the men’s basketball teams in the Boston area.

The BU Terriers and Northeastern Huskies both picked up big conference wins this week.

We’ll start with Northeastern, which knocked off Georgia State Wednesday night at Matthews Arena, 60-57.

Jonathan Lee was one of three NU players in double-figures. He had a game-high 19 points. The Huskies also got 14 from Quincy Ford and 13 from Joel Smith. NU has won four in a row, and six of its last seven.

The Huskies (5-2) remain competitive in a very tight CAA conference. They’re one game behind first-place George Mason and Old Dominion. Northeastern is one of five teams within one game of each other atop the standings. They have another big game coming up this weekend against a Drexel team that’s also 5-2 in conference play.

I was among the sparse crowd at Agganis Arena Monday night when BU picked up a significant conference victory against Albany. Head coach Joe Jones has this team playing at high level, especially on the defensive end of the floor.  The Terriers also shot a season-high 51% from the field.

After being named America East Player of the Week last week, D.J. Irving continued his torrid play against the Great Danes, pouring in 17 points. At 4-1, BU is just a 1/2 game out of first place, and takes a four-game winning streak into Thursday night’s game against the UNH Wildcats in Durham. After a weekend trip to Hartford, the Terriers’ next home game will be Tuesday, Jan. 24 against UMBC, and yes, Noontime Sports will be there for that one.

Harvard keeps rolling along, having won seven of its last eight. The Crimson will be on the road this weekend with games at Dartmouth and Yale.

Harvard hasn’t played since last Saturday, when the Crimson rolled to a 21-point win at home against George Washington. Harvard is now 15-2 on the season, and still ranked (No. 24) in the Coaches’ poll.

Catching Up With BU, Harvard and Northeastern Men’s Basketball

Time for our weekly look at the men’s basketball teams at Harvard, Boston University and Northeastern. All three teams are riding modest, two-game winning streaks.

We’ll start with Harvard. The Crimson won their Ivy League opener against Dartmouth, then followed it up with a non-conference victory on the road over Monmouth. In that game against the Hawks on Tuesday night, Keith Wright had a double-double: 18 points and 15 rebounds. Harvard is ranked No. 25 in the Coaches poll, and just outside the Top 25 in the AP poll. The Crimson return home on Saturday to host George Washington. According to the team’s website, that game is sold out. In fact, the Feb. 17 home game against Brown is the only game listed as still having tickets available. That’s what winning will do.

The BU Terriers are starting to get their act together. They picked up their second straight America East win Wednesday night, rallying in the second half to beat Maine, 77-68, in Orono. Darryl Partin had 27 points, and D.J. Irving added 23 and 11 rebounds to record his first career double-double. Next up for the Terriers: a big Saturday afternoon game at The Roof against first-place Stony Brook. It’s a rematch of last year’s conference championship game, won by BU, 56-54. That game was played down the street at Agganis Arena.

The Huskies are playing their best basketball of the season right now. Behind a game-high 21 points from Jonathan Lee, Northeastern pulled out a 64-62 road victory over Hofstra Wednesday night. NU has won four of its last five, and is now above .500 (3-2) in the CAA. On Saturday, the Huskies will try to keep rolling when they welcome the Tribe from William and Mary to Matthews Arena. That’s another winnable game for the Huskies.
