What to Know

A Colonial battle is on tap between the Stony Brook Seawolves and the Northeastern Huskies at noon ET Saturday at Matthews Arena. Northeastern will be strutting in after a victory while Stony Brook will be stumbling in from a defeat.

The contest between the Seawolves and the West Virginia Mountaineers last week was not a total blowout, but with Stony Brook falling 75-64 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. A silver lining for Stony Brook was the play of guard Tyler Stephenson-Moore, who had 16 points.

Meanwhile, the North Carolina A&T Aggies typically have all the answers at home, but on Thursday Northeastern proved too difficult a challenge. The Huskies wrapped up 2022 with an 88-76 win over the Aggies. Northeastern's guard Jahmyl Telfort looked sharp as he shot 5-for-7 from downtown and finished with 31 points and six rebounds.

The Seawolves are expected to lose this next one by 9. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.

Stony Brook is now 4-9 while Northeastern sits at 5-7. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Stony Brook is 359th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 9.5 on average. The Huskies have had an even harder time: they are stumbling into the matchup with the 348th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.5 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
