Delaware vs Northeastern

Northeastern 62, Delaware 61

  •  

BOSTON (AP) - Joel Smith buried a 20-foot jumper with 1.1 seconds left to cap a last-minute rally and give Northeastern a 62-61 win over Delaware Wednesday night.

The Demons (10-10, 6-4 Colonial Athletic Association) trailed 61-56 with 57 seconds left.

Jonathan Lee then made two free throws with 30 seconds and, after a turnover by Khalid Lewis, Kauri Black was fouled after an offensive rebound. He made both free throws to pull the Huskies within one, 61-60, with 13 seconds to go.

Delaware's Devon Saddler missed the front end of a one-and-one and Reggie Spencer grabbed the rebound to set up Smith's winner.

Tied at 22 at halftime, Northeastern shot 60.9 percent in the second half (14 of 23) and got 13 of Smith's 20 points and 12 of Lee's 14 in the period.

Devon Saddler scored 24 points to lead the Blue Hens (10-10, 5-5), who outscored Northeastern 44-14 in paint.
