QuickCast: Basketball vs. William & Mary (CAA Tournament First Round)

March 2nd, 2012


Despite not having junior captain Jonathan Lee for much of the second half due to foul trouble, rebounding and strong defense helped push the Huskies past William & Mary 57-49 on Friday night and into the CAA Tournament quarterfinals.

NU 57, William & Mary 49: Huskies advance to quarters

March 2nd, 2012

What happened?

It was the second-ever meeting in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament between Northeastern and William & Mary after a 49-47 Tribe victory in the 2010 semifinals, and this time the result went in favor of the Huskies. It was the first time NU had ever beated WM in the state of Virginia, having previously lost all five games at the Tribe’s home court, Kaplan Arena at William & Mary Hall.

Neither of the first two games of the day had the first possession for either team result in points, but both teams bucked that trend after Reggie Spencer got an offensive rebound and followed with a layup to score for Northeastern, but William & Mary answered right back with a Brandon Britt triple. NU would quickly take a commanding 11-4 lead with 14:33 on the clock, and eventually pushed it out to a 20-10 advantage about six minutes later. Jon Lee picked up his third foul of the game with his team leading 22-12 and 5:24 remaining in the period, and did not play again until after the break. Once he sat, William & Mary scored seven straight points to bring it back within three and finished the half down only 25-22.

Once the intermission was over, Jon Lee came back out onto the floor and hit a 3-pointer just 29 seconds into the frame, and was followed immediately by a triple from his co-captain Joel Smith. Quincy Ford would later hit two shots from beyond the arc with only a McDowell jumper separating the treys. The second of those would give the Huskies their largest lead of the day, a 12-point advantage at 39-27 with 16:38 on the clock.

It would be close to four minutes until either team found the net again, with Jon Lee picking up his 4th foul and Joel Smith getting three in a row during that span. Julian Boatner’s shot from downtown at the end of that stretch would spark a mini-run for the Tribe, as Northeastern hit only one field goal over a twelve-minute stretch after Ford’s triples. In that time, Jon Lee was also called for his fifth foul at the 10:38 mark. There was confusion on the play, as one official had signaled the play out of bounds but another called the foul on Lee that disqualified him for the rest of the night. The Huskies did, however, sink seven free throws to keep a 48-43 lead with 6:03 to go.

Alwayne Bigby hit an open 15-footer along the baseline with 4:47 to go, and that would prove to be the winning basket as it put NU up 50-43. The last five points of the game for Northeastern came at the free throw line as William & Mary was forced to foul despite making three of their last four shot attempts. The Huskies were only 20/33 (60.6%) from the charity stripe on the day, so the strategy made sense for William & Mary. However, they gave in after Kauri Black grabbed a defensive rebound with :31 left, and did not make any attempt for a comeback at that point. Read more…

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 CAAHoops.com, Mark Selig of JamesMadison.Rivals.com, Tim Pearrell of The Richmond Times-Dispatch,  Brian Mull of The Wilmington Star News and Phil Kasiecki of Hoopville.com.

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…

Huskies blown out by Tribe, 79-54

February 12th, 2012

What happened?

Entering the game, one might have expected a close matchup despite the Tribe’s 4-22 record overall (2-12 in CAA games). The Tribe have good players, and Northeastern had never lost to William & Mary by more than five points. They had also never won in Williamsburg. However, a close game is not what anybody got.

Freshmen Reggie Spencer and Quincy Ford combined to score the first six points of the night for Northeastern, taking a 6-4 lead just about five minutes in. First half offense isn’t necessarily a strength of either team, so the ten total points weren’t necessarily a surprise. That would be the only lead the Huskies would have in the game, as William & Mary went on a 13-2 run that saw four different players score. A pair of triples from junior co-captain Joel Smith, the second of which gave him sole possession of tenth place on NU’s all-time 3-pointers made list with 138, gave Northeastern some momentum. They would work the deficit down to 26-22 with 4:47 remaining, but William & Mary would go on to score the last 15 points of the frame.

Quincy Ford opened the second half with a steal and a dunk less than 30 seconds in, and the team seemed to be showing some energy out of the locker room. However, that energy was short-lived as the Tribe began a 14-4 run just under two and a half minutes after the break ended. At that point, the game was completely out of hand. At the final media timeout, with 2:47 remaining, both coaches emptied their benches. Matt Rum stayed in the game for about 30 seconds after that point, and Quincy Ford re-entered the game for the final minute, but those were the only starters who played at all after that last media timeout.

The Tribe twice held leads of 32 points, the largest deficit of the season for NU (previous high: 30 at NC State), before earning the 25-point win. Northeastern’s 79 points allowed matched the third-most of the year (also at Bradley, Dec. 6), following 83 at Massachusetts on Nov. 14 and 88 at NC State on Dec. 22.

On the positive side of things, Ford finished the game with a career-high 21 points, breaking his previous best of 20 that he set at James Madison on Jan. 7. The freshman class of Ford, Reggie Spencer (10), Demetrius Pollard (4) and Marco Banegas-Flores (4) accounted for 39 of the Huskies’ 54 points in the game. Read more…
