It was a welcome return to the Hynes Center for Iona Friday night, as A.J. English & Co. dismantled Delaware 92-77.
Joe Mihalich’s Hofstra squad has certainly proven its offensive prowess this season. The Pride, picked as favorites in the CAA, have scored 96 points in each of their two contests this year and took down Division II Molloy 96-64 Monday night.
Hofstra, powered by Brian Bernardi’s career-night, pushed past an 18 point deficit and pulled out a 96-85 win over Canisius on Friday night. We broke it down on both ends as to what it means for Hofstra and Canisius, and here are some photos from the season debut in Hempstead.

Vermont remained perfect on Long Island with an 85-81 victory at Hofstra Wednesday evening in the opening round of the College Basketball Invitational tournament. The Catamounts placed five players in double figures in the balanced attack.

Northeastern struggled to an 11-21 record last year […]
