What to Know
After two games on the road, the Hofstra Pride are heading back home. The Pride and the College of Charleston Cougars will face off in a Colonial battle at 7 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Mack Sports Complex. Hofstra is out to keep their five-game home win streak alive.
Hofstra was just a bucket short of a victory last Wednesday and fell 63-62 to the William & Mary Tribe. What made the defeat an especially bitter pill for Hofstra to swallow was that they had been favored by 16.5 points coming into the game. One thing holding Hofstra back was the mediocre play of guard Omar Silverio, who did not have his best game: he finished with only nine points on 2-for-11 shooting in his 31 minutes on the court.
Speaking of close games: College of Charleston lost 67-66 to the Delaware Fightin’ Blue Hens. Despite the loss, the Cougars had strong showings from forward Osinachi Smart, who posted a double-double on 11 points and ten rebounds, and forward John Meeks, who had 17 points along with five boards.
Having both suffered close losses, these teams will no doubt be fighting for every inch to win this one. The teams are out to make things right after dropping matches they were expected to win, so stay tuned to see which squad bounces back.
