Hofstra’s star point guard Juan’ya Green joined one of the most exclusive clubs in NCAA basketball during Sunday afternoon’s 98-95 OT loss at James Madison.
As Ameen Tanksley’s 3-pointer fell through the net, one thing was certain: Hofstra was rolling. The redshirt senior’s trey gave the Pride a 38-18 lead with 2:24 remaining in the first half as Hofstra blasted full speed ahead through UNCW’s defense like the Titanic through the Atlantic.
Hofstra was picked as the favorite in the hotly contested Colonial Athletic Association, and while they sit tied for first at 8-2, this is hardly how the plan was imagined back in the summer.
Three times at Matthews Arena on Thursday night, Hofstra had the ball with a chance to win as the clock expired. Three times, the Pride’s shots didn’t fall. But when the visitors got an opportunity to win by playing defense, they came through, stopping Northeastern on a key possession to earn a thrilling 96-92, triple-overtime […]
Hofstra fans witnessed one of the great games in the history of Hofstra basketball Saturday afternoon. Sophomore forward Rokas Gustys dominated with 25 points and 20 rebounds, but it wasn’t enough to earn the Pride the victory as Hofstra fell to James Madison University 86-82 in overtime.

ELON, N.C. – In the age of data and analytics, the precise benefits of senior leadership and home-court advantage remain somewhat elusive. Although I’m sure there are skeptics out there, most people are pretty sure they exist, it’s just a matter to what degree. Northeastern stands to be a pretty good test case for the […]
Hofstra ended 2015 on a high note, winning their CAA opener 90-80 over the University of Delaware Thursday afternoon. All eight Pride players scored, including every starter finishing in double-figures as Hofstra earned their first conference victory of the season.
Sometimes the end justifies the means. Hofstra didn’t have the easy time anticipated when they hosted 1-9 Sacred Heart Monday evening, but in the end the Pride managed the 80-73 victory.
