James Madison led for less than two minutes, but it was enough to pull off a shocking 69-63 comeback at Hofstra Saturday afternoon.
Hofstra jumped out to an early 14-2 lead and never looked back, going wire to wire in a dominating 86-58 win over Drexel Wednesday evening at the Mack Sports Complex in Hempstead, NY.
The top reason Northeastern is tied for the Colonial lead at 5-1 is a resurgent offense. In conference play last season, the Huskies ranked seventh of nine teams in offensive efficiency en route to a 7-9 record. With mostly the same personnel, the Huskies have scored 1.09 points per possession to date, second-best in the CAA behind co-leader […]
The UNCW Seahawks had lost five games in a row to Hofstra, including a 68-56 Pride victory earlier this month. UNCW ended that streak with a thrilling 79-74 victory Saturday afternoon in Hempstead, NY.
Northeastern and Hofstra lived up to their billing as CAA contenders in a delightful slugfest on Wednesday evening. Two nearly unstoppable offenses traded the lead back and forth until a late 11-0 run gave the Huskies a 91-83 victory, pulling Northeastern, Hofstra and William & Mary into a three-way tie atop the Colonial at 4-1.
What difference a few months can make. Last March, Delaware was the class of the Colonial Athletic Association. Just 304 days ago, the Blue Hens dispatched Hofstra 87-76 in the CAA tournament en route to an appearance in the NCAA tournament against Tom Izzo and Michigan State.
After a month away from Matthews Arena, Northeastern returned home with a 9-4 record, a top-100 KenPom rating, and a billing as CAA co-favorites with Hofstra. Despite entering Monday’s game as 11.5-point favorites, however, the Huskies couldn’t handle UNC Wilmington’s quickness and defensive pressure. The Seahawks pulled away after halftime for a 75-68 victory, snapping […]
Having not seen Hofstra this season, but plenty of Niagara two years ago, it was the first chance for my eyes to adjust to Juan’ya Green and Ameen Tanksley in gold instead of purple. My memory of Green is as a pure scorer, but the numbers don’t exactly back that up. As a freshman on […]
If the cliché “Defense wins championships” holds water in basketball, Hofstra has not been playing at a championship level recently. Over their last two games, the Pride are allowing opponents to shoot 51% from the field.
Columbia (6-3) defeated Hofstra (7-3) 82-77 in its signature win of non-conference season. Here are five thoughts following Saturday’s contest at Levien Gym.
