With less than two minutes remaining in the extra session, the Blue Hens’ deficit was three when Northeastern’s Quincy Ford launched up a three-pointer in hopes of sticking a dagger into Delaware’s comeback attempt.

However, the missed three allowed Threatt to dominate the rest of the way.

In the final 1 minute and 4 seconds, Threatt scored the final five points of the game, including a three-pointer with 12 ticks to take the lead, to give Delaware the win.

Threatt finished with a team-high 20 points.

Jonathon Lee dished in a game-high 23 points for the Huskies while Ford scored 21, but Northeastern was unable to over the absence of top-scorer Joel Smith.

Smith, a CAA preseason honorable mention, injured his ankle in the Huskies’ previous game against William & Mary. The senior is averaging 17 points a game.

Devon Saddler netted 18 points and has now scored in double-figures in 31 straight contests.

Jamelle Hagins registered game-highs in boards with 9 and blocks with 4. The senior also scored 17 points.

Led by Hagins, Delaware was able to dominate the boards 38-28.

With the win Delaware (14-12, 9-4) is now two games above .500 for the first time this season and has moved into second place in the CAA.

Northeastern (17-9, 12-2) could have clinched at least a share of the CAA regular season crown, but will now have to wait until Saturday when they face UNC-Wilmington.

The Blue Hens will look for their fourth-straight win on Saturday when they host James Madison at 7:30 p.m.
