Previewing the CAA Awards Banquet

March 1st, 2012

The 2012 Virginia 529 CAA Men’s Basketball Championship will tip off in less than 24 hours. While Thursday is the calm before the storm, the league will take time this evening to recognize the top performers of the 2011-12 season with the CAA Awards Banquet.

First, let’s explore picks from pundits Mike Litos of, Mark Selig of, Tim Pearrell of The Richmond Times-Dispatch,  Brian Mull of The Wilmington Star News and Phil Kasiecki of

The honors will be handed out at the banquet, which begins at 7 p.m., but let’s take a look at the awards and what hardware we think Northeastern could go home with.

Player of the Year: Pretty much self-explanatory. The top player in the league is recognized with this award, and for the first time since 2009 the award will not say “Charles Jenkins” on it. The former Hofstra standout won the award in 2010 and 2011, and before that VCU’s Eric Maynor claimed the title in 2008 and 2009. The major candidates this year are Ryan Pearson of George Mason and Frantz Massenat of Drexel, although Kent Bazemore of ODU is getting consideration as well.
Northeastern candidate: If I had to go with one I’d say junior captain Jonathan Lee, who led the team in scoring, field goal percentage, free throw percentage, three point percentage and assists and was second in the league in minutes per game. Likelihood: None.
My pick: Pearson. Struggled down the stretch but averaged 17.8/8.5 for a team with a new coach that lost two of its three leading scorers from a season ago. Pearson is also a senior, and like it or not experience will push him past Massenat, a sophomore. Read more…

NU 70, Towson 51: Hot Shooting Help Huskies Top Tigers

February 15th, 2012

What happened?:

After an ultra-slow pace was featured in the Huskies’ 57-48 win over Towson in January, NU looked to push the pace Tuesday night at Matthews Arena. The contest featured a number of scoring runs. After the visitors grabbed a 6-5 lead, Northeastern ran off eight consecutive points to grab a lead it never relinquished. Towson answered back shortly after, but another quick seven from the Huskies quickly pushed the advantage. Another 12-2 run gave the hosts a comfortable lead just before the halftime break, but Towson used an 11-5 run of its own to make it 37-27 at the end of the half.

Northeastern came out slow to start the second stanza, going nearly the first four minutes without a field goal. Towson didn’t fare much better, opening 1 of 6 from the floor in the opening minutes. Eventually Northeastern found its stroke, using a 14-2 run to put the game out of reach. The Huskies pushed their lead to as many as 25 before emptying the bench and earning a 70-51 decision.

NU 57, Towson 48: Huskies start the year with a win

January 4th, 2012

What happened?

Northeastern traveled down to Towson, Md. hoping to open the 2012 calendar year with a victory against a team that didn’t win a game in 2011, and that is what they got. But it wasn’t as easy as it might sound.

Alex Bates earned his first career start, and sunk the first point of the game on a free throw after drawing a foul against the Tigers’ rebound specialist Robert Nwankwo. With the big man leaving the game immediately after the foul, Northeastern was able to score the first six points of the contest and it looked like the Huskies would be able to cruise their way to a win. However, a quick 8-0 run from Towson gave them a lead before NU took it right back with the next seven points. The resulting five-point advantage would be the largest for either team through the rest of the half with Towson pushing themselves to a two-basket lead at the 7:26 mark after their 9-0 push.

A Jervon Pressley layup with just under a minute and a half remaining in the opening frame would cut the Northeastern lead to two, and the teams headed into the locker rooms with the Huskies leading by a slim 25-23 margin. Despite Nwankwo playing a total of two minutes in the first half, Towson held a 21-10 advantage on the boards at the break, and had scored ten second-chance points, but their undoing was seven turnovers that NU had converted into nine points. In comparison, Northeastern had turned the ball over just three times for two Towson points.

In the second half, the Huskies would slowly build their lead against a Towson team that refused to give in. Eventually, Northeastern would take a ten-point lead with 12:07 to go but the Tigers cut that back to two less than four minutes later. A 13-4 rush would give the Huskies their largest lead at any point in the game, an 11-point advantage capped off by a Quincy Ford free throw with a minute to go. Despite a host of substitutions and fouls by Towson down the stretch, a lack of shots and turnovers would run out the clock and send the Tigers to their 33rd consecutive defeat since January 3, 2011.
