  • The New York Times: Northeastern’s turnaround leads to tournament

    The New York Times - 03/19/2015

    Northeastern’s basketball team occupies a distinctive niche in the sporting culture of a university that does not have a football team, which was disbanded in 2009 because it was too expensive. The hockey team is perennially good, and perhaps the university’s most prominent athletic program, but it has not won the Beanpot — the tournament among the four major Boston-area college hockey teams — since 1988.

    Into that void barged the basketball team, which last made the N.C.A.A. tournament as a member of the North Atlantic Conference, the predecessor of the America East. Northeastern continued its stunning turnaround — to 23-11, from 11-21 last season — by toppling the Colonial Athletic Association’s top two seeds, North Carolina-Wilmington and William and Mary, in that conference’s tournament to capture its first N.C.A.A. berth since 1991. The Huskies, seeded 14th in the Midwest Region, play Thursday afternoon against No. 3 Notre Dame, whose coach, Mike Brey, is wary of their outside shooting.
