Northeastern tops Santa Clara 78-72
A 13-2 spurt midway through the first half lifted Northeastern (7-3) from a two-point deficit to a 20-13 lead. Another 11-2 run near the end of the frame - including a pair of Caleb Donnelly 3-pointers - led to a 42-33 advantage for the Huskies at the break.
But David Walker drilled a pair of 3-pointers to push the lead back to six and Northeastern held off the Broncos down the stretch.
Santa Clara was paced by Brownridge's 18 points.
