Matthews Arena will be buzzing when the men’s bas­ket­ball team hosts Hof­stra on Wednesday at 7 p.m. The red-​​hot Huskies have won four games in a row and hope to extend their Colo­nial Ath­letic Association-​​best 4–0 record to remain the conference’s top team.

Tickets are avail­able through the myT­ickets portal on myNEU. The game is free for North­eastern fac­ulty and staff, and the first 500 stu­dents through the doors will receive a free t-​​shirt. “The Spot,” the pop­ular fan gath­ering area on the arena floor level, will open one hour prior to tip-​​off.

Fans unable to attend the game can catch all the action live in high def­i­n­i­tion at GoNU​.com/​x​s​t​r​eam. WRBB radio also will carry the game live on 104.9 FM and WRBB​sports​.com.

The Huskies (9–7, 4–0 CAA) have beaten all four oppo­nents they have faced since opening con­fer­ence play on Jan. 3. The team’s bal­anced offen­sive attack has been bol­stered by the recent return of Jonathan Lee, a dynamic senior guard who has aver­aged 13 points per game in seven contests.

On a con­fer­ence call on Tuesday, head coach Bill Coen noted that the starting five’s strong play has been backed up by the per­for­mance of role players. The team has also fea­tured a dif­ferent top scorer in four of its last five games.

Coen claimed his 100th career vic­tory as Northeastern’s head bas­ket­ball coach on Sat­urday when the Huskies defeated Towson 70–59.

Sev­eral of Northeastern’s games this season have fea­tured buzzer-​​beating shots, adding another level of excite­ment to the team’s resur­gent play. Starting with Wednesday night’s game against Hof­stra, the Huskies will play five of its next six games at home. After hit­ting the road to face Delaware on Sat­urday, North­eastern will take on William & Mary (Jan. 23), George Mason (Jan. 27), Georgia State (Jan. 30), and Drexel (Feb. 2) in the friendly con­fines of its his­toric arena.
