Recap: Northeastern vs. William & Mary

Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Marcus Thornton scored a game-high 25 points as the William & Mary Tribe captured an 82-70 win over the Northeastern Huskies in Colonial Athletic Association action at Matthews Arena.

Thornton, who shot 3-of-6 from 3-point range and 8-of-13 from the floor, added five assists and five steals for the Tribe (15-8, 7-3 CAA) as they won for the third straight time and fifth in the last six outings. Tim Rusthoven and Omar Prewitt both chipped in 13 points and Brandon Britt 12 off the bench.

The Huskies (8-17, 5-6) were paced by Demetrius Pollard with his 13 points on just 3-of-12 shooting beyond the arc, followed by TJ Williams with 12 points, Scott Eatherton 11 and Chris Avenant 10 points as the hosts bowed for the third time in the last four games.

William & Mary scored the first points of the contest and never looked back, shooting an impressive 60.7 percent from the field, including 5-of-8 behind the 3-point line through the first 20 minutes to claim a commanding 45-18 advantage at the break.

Northeastern came up empty on 10 tries beyond the arc in the first half and converting a total of only six field goals in the frame.

The second half was much kinder to the Huskies as they made good on 54.1 percent from the floor, outscoring the visitors 52-37 in the process, but it was almost impossible for Northeastern to come back from a 33-point deficit in the period.

The Tribe won the contest at the free-throw line where they outscored the home team, 23-12.
