past Northeastern 56-54 Saturday night.

Tai Wesley added 14 points and Brockeith Paine had 13 for the

Aggies (4-1), who didn’t lead in the second half until Wesley made

a pair of free throws with 3:10 left for a 49-48 advantage.

Chaisson Allen, who led the Huskies (2-2) with 18 points, made a

free throw and Joel Smith made the last of his five 3-pointers to

put Northeastern back in front 52-49. But a Wesley dunk and

Jardine’s layup helped put the Aggies in charge.

Smith had 15 points for the Huskies. The game was tied 26-26 at

the half.

Jardine also had a double-double of 20 points and 13 rebounds in
