Elon Phoenix vs Northeastern Huskies 2/26/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Elon Phoenix will meet with the Northeastern Huskies in a Colonial Athletic Conference clash in Matthews Arena, MA, on Saturday, February 26, 2022, at 12:00 PM ET.

 

Elon (251st KenPom) lost four consecutive games entering their matchup against Hofstra, including a 33-point loss at home to the Pride on Feb. 15. But everything came together perfectly on Thursday night in Hempstead, as the Phoenix triumphed 81-55.

 

Elon’s Darius Burford had 21 points and Hunter McIntosh had 18 points. The Phoenix reduced the Pride to a season-low 29.5 percent shooting percentage, the lowest by an Elon opponent this year. Elon hit 48 percent from the floor and had a 21-point advantage on the boards over the Pride.

 

The Phoenix are tied for 7th place in the CAA with JMU (6-11), however, they are locked into that slot due to the Dukes’ ineligibility for the CAA Tournament. That means they’ll play either Towson (13-3 CAA) or UNCW (14-3 CAA) in the CAA Tournament on Sunday.

 

The good news is that they averted an 8-9 tie in the first round on Saturday. Elon is 8th in the CAA in terms of points per game (67.4) and points permitted (8th) (72.7ppg).

 

  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Elon’s last 7 matches.
  • The University of Elon Phoenix is 2-9 SU in their last 11 matches against Northeastern.
  • Elon is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 matches in the Colonial Athletic Conference.

Elon Phoenix vs Northeastern Huskies Predictions 2/26/2022

 

To say Northeastern had a long season in Boston is an understatement. Only two conference games were won by the Huskies, one of which was against second-placed Towson (58-53). The other win came against William & Mary (4-13 CAA), whom they will meet in the first round of the CAA Tournament on Saturday in the 8/9 game.

 

The Huskies defeated the Tribe 62-28 thanks to Chris Doherty’s 13 points and 15 rebounds, as well as Jason Strong’s 13 points.

 

The key was Northeastern’s defense, which kept William & Mary to 21.6 percent shooting and 1-of-17 shooting from beyond the arc. The Huskies made 44.6 percent of their shots from the field and 9 of 33 from beyond the arc.

 

Northeastern plays at a sluggish tempo (321st Adjusted Tempo), which may account for their 64.6 points per game (9th in CAA). Their defense gives up 69.4 points per game, but it has more to do with tempo than anything else. They enable teams to shoot 46.1 percent (9th in CAA) and 34.7 percent (T6) from outside the arc. They shoot 44.1 percent (6th) from the field and 32.8 percent (9th) from the three-point range on offense.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Northeastern’s last 9 matches.
  • The University of Northeastern Huskies is 2-8 SU in their last 10 matches this season.
  • Northeastern is 3-11 ATS in their last 14 matches in the Colonial Athletic Conference.

Elon Phoenix vs Northeastern Huskies. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Northeastern Huskies. I jumped back on the Northeastern train. I fell off the anti-William & Mary bandwagon, and then the Tribe chose not to show up offensively.

In their defeat in Boston, they shot 1-for-17 from outside the arc, while Towson went 1-for-15. Elon did not perform much better in their previous game, and while they just have pride (not Hofstra pride) to play for, they have a lot to play for.

 

The Huskies are competing for their seniors in their final home match and to get some momentum heading into the tournament next week. Northeastern is shooting 46 percent from the field at home, while Elon is only shooting 41.3 percent on the road. The Northeastern Huskies will win to a predicted score of 71-67.
