Northeastern Huskies Basketball Schedule
Once again the college basketball season is upon us and there is arguably
no better place to be than inside Matthews Arena, the Boston, Massachusetts home of the Northeastern Huskies. As the Huskies
enter Colonial Athletic Association play they will be looking to score some big time upsets as they try to reestablish themselves
as a major factor in the conference en route to an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Replete with impressive passing, dunking,
shooting, and lock down defense, the Northeastern Huskies always bring the excitement. The Huskies had their share of struggles
last season, finishing 11-21 and in 5th place in the Colonial Athletic Association, but they have a strong core of returning
players who are determined to turn things around.
The Northeastern Huskies will once again be going up against all of
the toughest teams in the Colonial Athletic Association including the Charleston Cougars,the Delaware Fightin' Hens, the Drexel
Dragons, the Elon Phoenix, the Hofstra Pride, the James Madison Dukes, the Towson Tigers, the University of North Carolina
– Wilmington Seahawks, and the William & Mary Tribe. Navigating through the difficult Colonial Athletic Association
regular season schedule is a daunting task but this year's Huskies team seems to have the talent to make some real noise in
the conference as they attempt to climb up the standings and score some big wins on their way to their first NCAA Tournament
berth since 1991. The Huskies will need all the help they can get from their dedicated fan base when they take on tough teams
at the Matthews Arena so be sure to get your tickets to support the Huskies from StubHub as soon as possible.
Huskies Basketball History
The Northeastern Huskies have been competing in the CAA since 2005 after having been a charter
member of the America East Conference prior to that. The Huskies have been conference regular season champions nine times
and have won their conference tournament seven times. Last season did not play out exactly as the Huskies had hoped but some
strong conference play last season along with some key returning players provide plenty of hope for Northeastern during the
2014-2015 season. Head coach Bill Coen has proven that he is able to motivate his squad and should have the Huskies well-prepared
for a march up the conference standings.

in the Colonial Athletic Conference: the Charleston Cougars, the Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens, the Drexel Dragons, the Elon
Phoenix, the Hofstra Pride, the James Madison Dukes, the Northeastern Huskies, the Towson Tigers, the University of North
Carolina – Wilmington Seahawks, and the William & Mary Tribe. During the 2014-2015 season the Delaware Fightin'
Blue Hens will be the reigning conference regular season and tournament champions and will have to be ready to take the best
shots of all the other teams trying to knock them off. If you are looking for some of the best action in college hoops you
have come to the right place in the Colonial Athletic Conference.

defensive stops. All of a sudden the clock is winding down in the second half and the two sides are wrapped up in yet another
tight contest. Your palms get sweaty with each trip down the floor and each time a player from your favorite team lets loose
a shot you hold your breath until the ball tickles the twine. This continues until the final buzzer when the Huskies' side
erupts after another big win and their fans exit of the arena in jubilation. The moment you leave the Matthews Arena you will
want to immediately start planning your next trip to the venue to cheer on the Huskies.
