#CAAHoops Weekly - March 1 Edition
This week's edition of #CAAHoops Weekly starts with a look back at a pair of overtime thrillers in men’s basketball as Towson defeated George Mason 85-81 to end a 20-game losing streak to the Patriots and Northeastern used a 27-for-27 effort from the free throw line to top Georgia State 90-84 and capture its first CAA regular-season title.
Hosts Bobby Broyles and Rob Washburn also look ahead to the final day of the regular season, which includes a pair matchups featuring teams battling for the #3 seed in the CAA Men’s Basketball Championship, presented by Jani-King. George Mason travels to Delaware in a nationally televised contest on the NBC Sports Network at 2 p.m. while James Madison visits William & Mary in a regionally televised clash on Comcast SportsNet at 6 p.m.
#CAAHoops Weekly features an interview with Northeastern senior guard Joel Smith, who is among the league’s leaders in scoring, 3-point shooting and free throw percentage and has helped lead the Huskies to the CAA regular-season championship.
Broyles and Washburn then shift their focus to the women's hoops side where they review Delaware’s 79-50 triumph over Hofstra that extended the Blue Hens’ winning streak to 20 and clinched their second consecutive CAA regular-season title. They also look at the final conference meeting between long-time rivals James Madison and Old Dominion, in which the Dukes posted a 77-61 win.
#CAAHoops Weekly moves into preview mode on the women's side and focuses on Northeastern’s quest to set a record for CAA wins in a season as it hosts Old Dominion on Sunday afternoon. They also analyze the big rivalry game between two of the league’s top squads as second-place Drexel travels to first-place Delaware.
