PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Quincy Ford forced overtime with a double-clutch 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds left in regulation and Northeastern defeated Drexel 63-58 in Colonial Athletic Association play Tuesday night.

The Huskies' Demetrius Pollard hit a free throw with 51 seconds left to make it 47-44, and after Drexel's Kazembe Abif missed a 3-pointer with 18 seconds left, Ford drained his trey to force extra play.

Northeastern (8-7, 3-0) scored the first four points of overtime, but Drexel pulled within 59-58 on Aquil Younger's layup with 6 seconds left. Joel Smith hit two free throws for Northeastern on the next possession, and then Abif turned the ball over to ensure the Huskies' win.
