Western Michigan pregame

The Huskies are playing a morning contest for the second straight day as they take on Western Michigan in the consolation bracket of the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic. Northeastern hopes to start a new streak after its 398-game stretch of hitting at least one three-pointer came to an end in a 78-67 loss to St. Mary's yesterday.


• This is NU's first game against a team from the Mid-American Conference since 1993. NU is 0-2 all-time against the MAC.

• Matt Janning is 10 points away from tying Marcus Blossom (1997-01) for eighth all-time in points at Northeastern. Janning comes into the game with 1,465 points.

• Manny Adako passed Jim Conors (1972-75) for 36th all-time at NU in scoring with 20 points yesterday.

• Northeastern is looking to avoid its first five-game losing streak since posting a six-game skid between Dec. 22, 2006 and Jan. 8, 2007.

• Western Michigan is 1-0 against the CAA this season, beating VCU on Nov. 18, 83-67.

• Western Michigan is shooting 25.3 percent as a team from three-point range. Only three of the team's 13 players are shooting better than 30 percent from behind the arc.
