What to Know
The Stony Brook Seawolves and the Northeastern Huskies are set to square off in a Colonial matchup at 7 p.m. ET Jan. 19 at Island Federal Credit Union Arena. Northeastern should still be feeling good after a win, while the Seawolves will be looking to get back in the win column.
Stony Brook was close but no cigar on Saturday as they fell 61-59 to the North Carolina A&T Aggies. Guard Tyler Stephenson-Moore (18 points) and forward Frankie Policelli (16 points) were the top scorers for Stony Brook.
Speaking of close games: Northeastern escaped with a win on Monday against the Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens by the margin of a single free throw, 59-58.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Stony Brook is expected to win a tight contest Thursday. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
The Seawolves are now 7-11 while the Huskies sit at 7-10. A pair of numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Stony Brook is 361st worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only nine on average. Northeasterns have had an even harder time: they are stumbling into the matchup with the 353rd fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.2 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
