Side Dishes:
After Northeastern’s win at Michigan State, the Huskies’ next game at one-loss Oakland suddenly became one of the more anticipated games of Tuesday, and it did not disappoint. Northeastern won 61-59 as T.J. Williams had a jumper at the buzzer, another exciting moment in a season that is rapidly being defined by them-this was the Huskies’ eighth game decided by four points or less. Not all was lost for the Golden Grizzlies, though, as coach Greg Kampe was a definite winner of the ugliest of ugly sweaters this Christmas season.

Northeastern 61, Oakland 59: The Fade away wins it all

As the final seconds ticked down, T.J. Williams put up a fade away jumper against Oakland. SPOILER: it went in.

He led all categories with 22 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists. Northeastern was leading 36-27 at the half, but Oakland kept itself in the game. The battle came down to the final seconds, with the ball in Williams’ hands. With the win, the Huskies have now pulled two straight upsets on the road — remember, they beat Michigan State in a shocker on Sunday. Oakland has a quick turnaround and will visit the Spartans themselves Wednesday night.
