New England roundup: Huskies fend off pesky ODU

Joel Smith scored 27 points and teamed with Jonathan Lee to hit late foul shots to give Northeastern a 79-74 overtime victory against Old Dominion Saturday in a Colonial Athletic Association game in Norfolk, Va.

The Huskies (16-8, 11-1) earned their 11th win in the last 12 games. But ODU (3-21, 1-11), which got a career-high 25 points from Dimitri Batten off the bench, nearly pulled off the upset.
