Northeastern’s win today put an end to its recent struggles. It plays next on Jan. 14 in a matchup with Drexel. On the other side, this evening’s result was a letdown for Hampton. The team was hoping to rebound from its last loss against Hofstra. A conference clash with William & Mary on Jan. 12 is the Pirates’ next action.
