Northeastern Clips Vermont, 71-67


Northeastern held off a late Vermont charge en route to a 71-67 win on Saturday.

A 13-4 Catamounts run that spanned 6:13 erased what was a 10-point Huskies lead, and sliced it to one, 66-65 with 2:12 remaining.

However, Shawn Occeus would erase the bleeding for Northeastern with a triple to push its advantage to 69-65.

NE (6-4) 36 35 71

Vermont would cut it to two courtesy of a pair of free throws from Anthony Lamb, but was unable to get what would have been the game-tying layup to fall, and two Vasa Pusica free throws sealed the Northeastern win.


The Huskies forced the Catamounts in 13 turnovers.

Donnell Gresham Jr. paced Northeastern, which improved to 5-0 at home, with 17 points and Occeus chipped in 16.

The Huskies are off until Monday, Dec. 18 when it visits Kent State (5-5) at 7 p.m.

More Money, More Problems.

This sample included people who had played and who were passionate about college athletics, people who were recently out of college and people who have been graduated for a long time. I personally voted that they should be compensated for their image being used for marketing or recruiting and in a way, they are with scholarships. But we all know that scholarships can only help so much.
