While we’ve given our thoughts on both sides, the heroic Dion Nesmith and Hofstra as the graduate student nailed a jumper to give the Pride a victory over Stony Brook, here are photos from Friday night’s thrilling start to a renewed Long Island rivalry.
Flash back a couple of years. Five years to be more precise. November 21, 2009 to be very precise.
Happy in eating my words on a prediction, a renewed rivalry began on Long Island Friday as Hofstra pulled out a 66-65 victory over Stony Brook thanks to Dion Nesmith’s heroics.

“It’s a new time and a new team.” Officially, that was the slogan of last year’s Hofstra team. A team in transition. A team with a new head coach. A team that routinely played with a short lineup.
When looking at preseason projections one thing we’ve tended to use here at Big Apple Buckets is returning possession minutes (RPMs). The idea of the statistic, which is calculated by adding up the total of each player’s minutes percentage and possession percentage, is that it really tells you what’s coming back.
