WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) Daniel Dixon hit five 3-pointers and scored 28 points to help lead William & Mary to a 94-69 win over Northeastern on Thursday night.
Dixon also added seven rebounds. Greg Malinowski finished with 14 points for William & Mary (13-9, 7-4 Colonial Athletic Association), which is on a season best four-game winning streak.

Bolden Brace hit 7 of 10 from the field and scored 20 points to lead Northeastern (13-10, 6-5). The Huskies shot a very respectable 49.1 percent from the field and 45 percent from 3, but the Tribe’s efficiency was overwhelming.
