Northeastern may be the new kid on the block, but the Huskies are ready to make an immediate impact in their first season in the Colonial Athletic Association.
Northeastern, which last year went 21-10, reached the championship game of the America East Tournament, and qualified for the NIT, returns four starters, including explosive senior Jose Juan Barea (22.3 ppg, 7.3 apg, 4.3 rpg), a player poised to become one of the CAA's new stars.
