    Providence, R.I. -- Providence guard Marshon Brooks had 27 points and eight rebounds, paving the way for a 77-72 victory over Northeastern on Wednesday night.

    Northeastern's Chaisson Allen paced the Huskies with 24 points and Joel Smith had 15. Alex Harris scored 11 points and added three steals for Northeastern.

    The Huskies (2-3) jumped out to an 11-2 lead, and controlled the game for the first 10 minutes. After shooting 10-for-12 from the field in the first 8 minutes, Northeastern found itself ahead 31-20.

    Providence (7-1) then put together a 15-6 run that cut the lead to two at halftime.
