Northeastern was 17 - 16 overall last year and finished 9 - 9 in CAA play. They lost in the CAA tourney to top seeded Hofstra. Schedule: https://nuhuskies.com/sports/mens-basketball/schedule/2019-20 Roster: https://nuhuskies.com/sports/mens-basketball/roster/2020-21 Stats: https://nuhuskies.com/sports/mens-basketball/stats The Huskies lost their top two scorers from last year. Their leading returning scorer is Sophomore Tyson Walker who averaged 10.4 points per game last year and also led the team in assists. He scored 32 in one contest against Elon. One potentially impactful addition to the team could be Chris Doherty who left Notre Dame to join the Huskies. Doherty is 6’8” and weighs 235. He was a three star recruit coming out of high school. He is described as being a swingman who can stretch the floor with his shooting and drive to the rim. He played very limited minutes in just 17 games for Notre Dame which was the reason for his decision to transfer. He averaged 0.9 ppg and 0.8 rebounds. Northeastern averaged 71.1 ppg while giving up 66.4 ppg last year. As a team they shot 47.4% from the field and 37.1% from 3. Opponents shot 45.4% from the field and 32.8% from 3. They averaged 11.9 turnovers per game during the 19-20 season. They are very young with no seniors on the roster. Northeastern is picked 4th in preseason CAA polls. The game is on ESPN+. My prediction: I hope DP doesn’t screw around and experiment with minutes, has his rotations set, and prepares from day one for A10 play. This should be a win. GMU 75 - Northeastern 65. Discuss.
