Northeastern Huskies vs South Alabama Jaguars 11/25/2019
Jordan Roland continues to lead the Huskies as a 30-point threat per night. Against the Holy Cross Crusaders, the team had their way winning by 56 points and Roland had 28. It was a chance for other Northeastern Huskies to showcase their skills and Guillen Smith came out with 10 points, five assists, and two steals. But a bigger surprise was Jason Strong who had 18 points, six rebounds, two assists, and four three-pointers in 17 minutes. Strong’s numbers scream for more minutes and against a tight game with the Jaguars, Strong and Smith are critical for the team’s success along with Tyson Walker and Maxime Boursiquot being the most consistent contributors for the team.
Players to Watch J. Roland (30.4 PPG, 3 RPG, 1.4 APG, 1.4 SPG), T. Walker (10 PPG, 1.8 RPG, 3.2 APG, 1.6 SPG), M. Boursiquot (9.3 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 1.7 APG, 2.3 SPG).
South Alabama Jaguars
The Jaguars also came from a blowout victory over the Spring Hill Badgers,98-72. Andre Fox had 16 points, but it was Josh Ajayi who was the best player of that game with 121 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks. Tyreke Locure was a surprise with 20 points, five assists, and three rebounds. Thrae Lott and Don Coleman combined for 21 points and it looks like the Jaguars also have players that could surprise the Huskies. Chad Lott is expected to contribute as well, but the Jaguars need everyone to be alert against the Huskies. It will now boil down if they can defend Northeastern well and take care of the ball from careless turnovers just like how they lost a few games in the past.
Players to Watch: A. Fox (17.8 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 2 APG, 1.4 SPG), J. Ajayi (16.2 PPG, 8.2 RPG, 2 APG, 1.2 BPG), C. Lott (11.8 PPG, 6 RPG, 1.2 APG, 1.4 SPG, 1.2 BPG)
