Thirty Minutes 'til Tip

BOSTON - The teams continue to go through shooting and stretching with Northeastern in their home white uniforms with red shooting jerseys and ODU in blue unis with white shooting shirts.

. . . The Huskies have the luxury of starting three seniors in guards Adrian Martinez (10.9 ppg, 1.9 rpg) and Bobby Kelly (8.3/3.5) and forward (and team scoring leader) Bennet Davis (14.4/7.8). Matt Janning (a sweet outside shooter) is a freshman (10.3/3/3) and sophomore Eugene Spates (7.5/3.5) round out the starting quintet.

ODU, meanwhile, starts two seniors, including its leading scorer, Lithunain forward, Valdas Vasylius (15.6/6.1) and guard Drew Williamson (11.4/4.7 apg). Joining the senior duo is sophomore guard Jonathan Adams (3.9/3.8), freshman center Gerald Lee (Finland, 2.5/3.1) and junior Brian Henderson (10.0/3.6). The Monarchs also bring a legit 7-foot-3 center form Tasmania off the bench in Sam Harris.

. . . Williamson ranks 27th nationally in steals per game with 2.6 (6th all time for the school). He is also creeping up the ODU career assists chart, currently 9th with 468.

. . . Northeastern students are still on break, until next Monday, meaning Matthews (with the ice down underneath the hoops floor) could be chilly and quite.

. . . The officials for tonight’s game are: Jeff Clark, Gary Pucino and Eric Britto.
