A berth in the NCAA Tournament is on the line in the CAA Conference Tournament as Northeastern battles William & Mary in the finals on Monday night.

The Tribe (20-11, 12-6) enter this one as the No. 1 seed and beat Hofstra in a thrilling double-overtime game on Sunday afternoon. William & Mary is looking for its first ever NCAA Tournament appearance. They’ll take on Northeastern (22-11, 12-6), who won in the semifinals over UNC Wilmington and split the regular-season series with the Tribe. The Huskies haven’t made the Big Dance since 1991.

William & Mary will rely on the scoring prowess of senior guard Marcus Thornton to lead its offense, which is ranked fifth in the NCAA in field-goal percentage this season. Northeastern will counter with the talented duo of Scott Eatherton and David Walker.
