Game 3, 2019-20: Northeastern (11/12)

Post by MikeUMA » Fri Nov 08, 2019 10:28 am

Don't wanna look too much past Fairfield, but getting a Northeastern thread started as they host Harvard, tonight at 8 on NESN. Check it out if you can, as we host Northeastern this coming Tuesday, then play at Harvard in a few weeks.

Northeastern's Jordan Roland dropped 39 on BU the other night, which NU says puts him at first in the nation in early PPG. He played his first two years at GW before his junior season with Northeastern last year.

^ I’ll be there, but I know bad weather + the fact that the game is on NESN = small crowd.

Tough for people to get there so soon after work, but once they start to win consistently the fans will find their way to the Bill! 8)

They are kicking the shit out of Harvard at the half.. may end being one of the tougher games in the non-con.. Honestly after watching them for a bit.. if we dont get blown-out by them we are probably looking at a pretty good season.

Harvard clawed back in, but N'eastern won 84-79. Roland finished with 42 on 13-19 overall, 6-9 from 3.

Hey history buffs, when would you say was the last time a big time scorer came to Mullins center and we shut him down?

Should be a fun game Tuesday, NE is good, but I think people are giving them too much credit for the Harvard win. Harvard played without Aikens and Towns.
