Huskies lose to St. Mary's

The 78-67 score does not dictate how close the game truly was, but the Huskies fell short against St. Mary's in the opening round of the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic.

Unfortunately for the Huskies, three-point and free throw shooting again was the problem. NU was 0-for-8 from behind the arc and just 11-for-16 from the charity stripe. The 0-for on three-point shooting is the first time in 13 years that NU hasn't made a three, a span of 398 games.

Meanwhile, St. Mary's was 10-for-21 from three and hit them all at the right time.

If you take away St. Mary's three-pointers, the score would have been Northeastern 67-48. Take away only three of those three-pointers and if NU makes just one or hits all its free throws, and the Huskies would have won.

NU will play either USC or Western Michigan in the consolation bracket Wednesday at 3 p.m., Eastern, 10 a.m., Hawaiian.
