Case was 6 of 11 shooting for the Tribe (8-13, 3-5 Coastal Athletic Associatio­n), and Trey Moss shot 4 for 10 from the field and 4 of 4 from the free-throw line, including the clinchers with four seconds left, to finish with 14 points. Lowe was 5 of 8 from the floor and 3 of 4 from the freethrow line to finish with 13 points.

Chris Doherty finished with 27 points and 13 rebounds for the Huskies (8-13, 3-5). Harold Woods added 13 points and four steals.

W&M led for most of the game, including 64-55 with 4 ½ minutes to go. Northeaste­rn pulled even on Jared Turner’s 3-pointer with 29 seconds remaining, but Lowe responded on the next possession. Masai Troutman missed from long range for Northeaste­rn, and Moss grabbed the rebound and sank two clinching free throws.
