Northeastern vs Hofstra Preview
The No. 6 seeded Northeastern Huskies bested Towson and Elon for a chance at a title repeat. They’ll face a familiar opponent in top seed Hofstra, a team with revenge on their mind.
Last season, Northeastern ended Hofstra’s NCAA tournament bid with an upset in the CAA finals. Despite a program best 27 wins, the Pride were left on the outside looking in and without a banner.
Hofstra punched its ticket back to the title game by handling Delaware 75-61.
“Tough win, hard-earned win and we beat a very good team,” Hofstra coach Joe Mihalich said. “We’re proud of it and ecstatic to be one of the two teams left and we’re proud of the way we earned it. Nobody gave us the path to the finals, that’s for sure.”
Eli Pemberton scored 24 to lead the way for the Pride, followed by Jalen Ray with 19.
“It means everything to us to be back in this championship. We worked all year for it,” Pemberton said. “We came up short last year. We don’t want that same thing happening again.”
Hoftra has lost in all three of its three previous trips to the conference title game.
Northeastern beat both Towson — the No. 3 seed — and Elon to advance. Jordan Rolan led the way in the semifinals with 21 points for the Huskies.
Northeastern has the upset under its belt from a year ago, but this year is a different story. It wasn’t until the Huskies two conference tournament wins that they were able to climb over .500.
“Two completely different seasons,” Northeastern head coach Bill Coen told The Hofstra Chronicle. “They had another outstanding season. We lost our way a little bit. We played good basketball but we did not always finish the job.”
Coen has major respect for his counterpart on the Hofstra sideline.
“[Mihalich] does a great job,” Coen said. “He is one of the best coaches in the country. Each and every night, they are difficult to compete against. They are explosive on offense and stingy on defense. It is going to be a great battle and I am really looking forward to it.”
Hofstra is a 1-point favorite for the matchup. The total for the game is set at 134.5. Hofstra are 11-1 against the spread in their last 12 games against an opponent in the Colonial Athletic conference.
