UMass Lowell, Cornell and Hofstra are just some of the surprises of the young college basketball season.
Hofstra easily dispatched the Wagner Seawhawks on Sunday, by a 93-71 margin, thanks to plenty of key performances. Here are three thoughts from the Pride’s third victory on the season and their best start to a season since 2008-09.
After a last-second loss to Stony Brook to start the season Columbia welcomed Wagner to Levien Gymnasium on Tuesday night.
