The Manhattan Jaspers defeated the Hofstra Pride 66-59 Saturday afternoon at the Mack Sports Complex in Hempstead, NY. The Jaspers were led by senior guard Michael Alvarado, who scored a season high 23 points while contributing 6 assists and 4 rebounds.
Three days ago we took a guess at what the New York City teams were going to do during their holiday tournaments. Let’s take a look back and see how those weekends went and what we got right and wrong.
One thing head coach Joe Mihalich knew when he took over on April 10 at Hofstra was that he needed players and fast.
It’s tournament time! While ostensibly LIU Brooklyn, Stony Brook, Hofstra, St. Francis Brooklyn and Columbia have been playing in “tournaments” over the early part of the season they haven’t really had that feel. Instead it’s been a series of tough road games.
Tuesday was a busy one in college basketball. With so many teams in action there was more to see than just Manhattan’s daring win at Columbia, Quinnipiac’s early morning loss at La Salle, or Fordham’s failed upset bid at Syracuse. Here are some other notable results from the day.
After finishing the first two games of the season at home, splitting games with Monmouth and Fairleigh Dickinson, Hofstra moves on to two tough road games this week.
The Hofstra Pride, trailed only by margins of 2-0 and 9-8 in the games first few minutes, led throughout by controlling the Fairleigh Dickinson Knights by holding them to barely over 30-percent shooting from the field, earning head coach Joe Mihalich his first victory as head coach by a 80-58 final at the Mack Sports […]
When head coach Joe Mihalich took over to rebuild a Hofstra roster with just four scholarship players, it did not take him long to form a class that would lay the foundation for his new vision of the program.
It might be hard to believe that two people who met for the first time at a high school in Maryland would be leading a program on Long Island, but the roots of the connection between athletic director Jeff Hathaway and his new head coach Joe Mihalich go back a long time.
While head coach Joe Mihalich and athletic director Jeff Hathaway stress that the process of building the Hofstra program will be “brick by brick” as they say, the glue that holds it together will be contributions from players who will be looking for something to prove in their final season.
