Hofstra celebrated Senior Day in style with a 73-40 romp over the College of Charleston Wednesday evening. Lucky for the Pride, the game didn’t interfere much with the recognition of their seniors. In fact, it allowed them an opportunity to shine one last time in front of the home crowd.
The scene was set. Marcus Thornton, the CAA Preseason Player of the Year, held the ball at the mid court. Ten seconds on the clock and the score knotted at 78.
Hofstra suffered a major setback in their hopes for a CAA regular season title with a 79-68 loss at home to Northeastern. Twenty-four points from senior Scott Eatherton helped the Huskies take down the Pride for the eighth time in a row.
During the week that was in the CAA, a handful of upsets changed the landscape of the league and the outlook of the conference race entering the final month of the season.

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 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.
