Northeastern beats Elon, wins for share of CAA title

ELON, N.C. (AP) Vasa Pusica tied his career high with 31 points and Northeastern scored 21 of the final 27 points on Saturday night as the Huskies beat Elon 81-59 to win a share of the Colonial Athletic Association title.

Northeastern (21-9, 14-4) won seven in a row to tie College of Charleston, which swept the season series against the Huskies, atop the conference standings.

Bolden Brace threw down a dunk to cap a 6-0 spurt that gave Northeastern a 56-47 lead midway through the second half. Tyler Seibring hit a jumper to pull Elon (14-15, 6-10) within seven, but Pusica converted a 3-point play and Shawn Occeus hit a 3-pointer and, after Seibring hit another jumper, Pusica made a 3 to push the lead to 69-55 with 4:21 to play. The Huskies closed on a 12-4 run, including seven-straight points by Pusica to cap the scoring.
