The Hofstra Pride endured an emotional season in 2016-17, marked by the highs and lows that define this sport. They suffered devastating defeats and capped off historic comebacks, but heading into this weekend’s Colonial Athletic Association tournament in Charleston, SC, they are playing as well as anyone in the league.
Hofstra began its final home stand of the season in disappointing fashion, with a 76-72 loss to the College of Charleston Thursday night at the Mack Sports Complex.
Halftime felt like rock bottom for Hofstra, which had lost eight of its last nine contests entering Thursday night and found itself trailing Delaware 35-24 at the intermission.
As far as college basketball games go, William & Mary’s 95-93 overtime win at Hofstra Monday afternoon was classic. As the next installment in this burgeoning rivalry, it was simply par for the course.
The Battle of Long Island could better be described as a massacre.
If you haven’t heard by now, Hofstra is playing Kentucky this weekend.
During a damp, rainy night in Hempstead, Long Island the Hofstra men’s basketball squad felt the chill of the outside air late in each half, as the Pride fell to St. Bonaventure 81-75 Tuesday evening at the Mack Sports Complex.
Hofstra pulled out a two-point victory over Columbia on Tuesday in Morningside Heights. The game was a clash between two retooling New York City area teams and the Pride had a little more depth and grit in the victory.
It was the “other” Zavier’s turn to shine Friday night. Zavier Peart led the Jaspers with 16 points as Manhattan dispatched local rival Hofstra 80-68 at Draddy Gymnasium.
Seasoned veterans led Hofstra to a banner year last season.
