Mass. College Hoops: Northeastern 71, George Mason 51

By Brian Willwerth 

BOSTON, MA – There is no question as to who the best team in the CAA is anymore. And there’s no mistake about who the new fan favorite is on Huntington Avenue.

The Northeastern Huskies sent a statement on Sunday night, soundly defeating George Mason at Matthews Arena, 71-51. NU is now a perfect 8-0 in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) and has a three-game lead over Mason and James Madison.

“I thought we played a solid, team brand of basketball,” said Northeastern head coach Bill Coen.  “I thought that the team showed some pretty good discipline in the face of some pretty physical defense.”

As for the fan favorite, that would be Dinko Marshavelski. The redshirt junior from Bulgaria came off the bench to score 11 points, one of four Huskies in double-figures. Joel Smith and Quincy Ford had 15 apiece, and Reggie Spencer had 14. But it was “Dinko,” as the student section often chanted, who caught much of the attention.

“We won’t be the best basketball team we can be until he forces his way into the lineup. And he’s starting to do that,” said Coen of Marshavelski’s play.

Northeastern led 29-21 at the half, and never trailed in the second. Every time the Patriots tried to mount a comeback, the Huskies had an answer.  The key moment came with about six and a half minutes remaining. Mason had cut the lead to four, the closest the Patriots got in the entire second half. But the Huskies went on a 17-4 run over the next four minutes to put the game out of reach. NU was 7 of 15 from behind the 3-point line, with 5 of those 7 coming in the second half.  The Huskies moved the ball around the perimeter extremely well, particularly in the second half.

Defensively, the effort was solid. The 51 points were the fewest allowed by the Huskies in a game this season. They held GMU leading scorer Sherrod Wright to 12 points, well below his season average of 18. Coen said it was a team effort keeping Wright in check.

And for this group of Huskies, now with a three-game lead in the conference, it seems to be a different hero stepping up every night.

“I said it (during) shoot-around today – ‘someone is going to come into the game tonight and really help us win,’” said Coen. “And tonight it was Dinko’s turn.”

The Huskies host Georgia State on Wednesday night.

It’s Friday, which means it is officially time to unveil our five games to watch in college basketball this weekend.

Enjoy the games and make sure to send us your thoughts on Twitter (@NoontimeSports or @NoonSportsBlog), too.

Men’s Basketball:

Northeastern University at Delaware (Saturday, 2:00 p.m.)Can anyone stop the Huskies? They’re seriously on fire!

On Wednesday, Northeastern earned its fifth consecutive Colonial Athletic Association conference victory by defeating Hofstra at Matthews Arena, 65-60. Sophomore Quincy Ford netted a game-high 24 points in the win, while senior Joel Smith sank his 200th career three-pointer.

The Huskies 5-0 mark is their best start in conference play since 2008-09. They’ve won six of their last seven outings and will attempt to preserve their mark with a victory against a Blue Hens team, which is coming off a loss to Towson.     

St. Anselm at Assumption College (Saturday, 3:30 p.m.)This is a critical Northeast-10 Conference match. Both teams are 12-2 overall, but the Hounds of Assumption are 9-1 in conference play. Assumption hasn’t lost in 2013, as they’ve defeated Bentley University, Southern New Hampshire and Stonehill College, while St. A’s is currently on a seven-game winning streak and hasn’t dropped a contest since losing to UMass-Lowell in December.

Freshman Roy Mabrey, who’s averaging 18.4 points per game, has enjoyed a successful first season with the Hawks and will certainly be someone the Hounds will have to locate on offense.

MIT at WPI (Saturday, 2:00 p.m.) – WPI has won 17 consecutive games this season and continues to climb in the rankings. In their first conference clash against Babson College a few weeks ago, the Engineers forced the Beavers to turn the ball over 17 times en route to numerous points off transition.

Freshman Zach Karalis continues to be a spark for WPI off the bench. He recorded 14 points in his team’s last win against Clark.

MIT started the season as the number one team in the land, but ever since they’ve dealt with a few setbacks and some injuries. However, Larry Anderson’s squad has won three of their last four contests.

Women’s Basketball:

Boston University at New Hampshire (Saturday, 2:00 p.m.)The Terriers have won 12 consecutive contests and a win on Saturday would match their longest winning streak from a year ago.

Four members of the BU squad recorded double-digits in their most recent win against Maine on Wednesday, which extended their recorded to 15-3, 5-0 in America East play. Senior Chantell Alford netted five trifectas against the Black Bears and is one shy of tying Alex Young’s school record of 218.

Williams College at Babson College (Friday, 6:00 p.m.)The Beavers recently checked in as the 20th best team in the nation this week, and on Wednesday, they overcame a three-point deficit at halftime to defeat Clark University, 70-62.

Senior Sarah Collins continues to be the biggest challenge for opposing coaches and players, as she recorded her 13th double-double of the season against the Cougars.

Last year Williams downed Babson, 61-39 on their home court, but this year it could be a different story; especially with the way the Beavers underclassmen have been playing.

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.
