BOSTON (AP) Shawn Occeus scored 24 points with four 3-pointers, Vasa Pusica added 17 points with three treys and Northeastern drained 12 of 25 from long range to defeat Towson 80-75 Thursday night, pushing its win streak to six games and securing its second-place finish in the Colonial Athletic Association.
The Huskies (20-9, 13-4) close out the regular season Saturday at Elon, and have earned a bye into the quarterfinals of the CAA tournament March 4.
Maxime Boursiquot and Occeus wrapped back-to-back layups around a Boursiquot steal to claim a 36-34 lead for Northeastern at the start of the second half and Donnell Gresham Jr. nailed a 3-pointer for a 42-36 Huskies lead.
