Senior big man Hunter Sabety is 8th in the league in blocks per game off the bench (0.8), Grad transfer Joel Angus III provides decent scoring and rebounding (5.2 ppg, 3.9 rpg), and freshman guard Jalen Ray is an additional perimeter threat. 10 different players on Hofstra's squad have averaged 10 minutes per game or more.
The season statistics don't tell the whole story. Angus III (17 starts) lost his starting spot to Trueheart (5 starts). Kenny Wormley (13 starts) lost his starting spot to Buie (9 starts). Angus III averaged 8.4 points and 5.9 rebounds in his first 9 games and has averaged 2.5 points and 2.3 rebounds since. Wormley has 30 assists in 11 out of conference games and 4 assists in 11 CAA games. Trueheart averaged 2.7 points and 1.5 rebounds in his first 13 games and 6.2 points and 4.7 rebounds since. In Hofstra's first 4 games, Trueheart played 5 minutes combined with no points and 1 rebound. He went from rarely playing to being a starter. Buie scored 12 in his first game, averaged 2.0 in his next 8 games, and has averaged 6.3 since.

Angus III and Wormley are injured, but I have no idea if they will play. Angus III missed the last 2 games and Wormley got hurt in 3 minutes last game.

Hofstra is having a throwback night and calling themselves "Hofstra College Flying Dutchmen."

So basically it's kind of been a revolving door outside of Wright-Foreman, Pemberton and Gustys?

RE: @Hofstra
If we can knock off Hofstra, we'll have beaten 2 teams this year that currently feature one of the nation's top 5 scorers. Wright-Foreman ranks 4th, while Chris Clemons of Campbell ranks 5th (24.4 ppg). That has to be a rare feat, right? lol.

That spread seems really high, especially with our recent stretch of games.

I wonder if we put Bryan on Gustkys. Bryan can bang with anyone and I don't see Cacok being as effective if he has to deal with him on the defensive end.

In the last 12 games, Wright-Foreman has been in Hofstra's top three scorers every time, Pemberton has been in Hofstra's top three scorers every game except for one, and Gustys has been in Hofstra's top three scorers every game except for two. The top three scorers include ties for third. In 10 out of 22 games, all of them scored more than anyone else on Hofstra. Gustys, who has played the third most minutes, has played 44.9% more minutes than Jalen Ray, who has played the fourth most.

Kind of sounds like what we had last year with Ingram, Bryce, Flemmings

Kind of, but not exactly. Last season Cacok was fourth on your team in scoring while averaging over double what Ray who is fourth on Hofstra averages now.

RE: @Hofstra
Not sure why, but Cacok only played 16 minutes and 19 minutes against Hofstra last year.

Anyhow, Wright-Foreman takes a LOT of shots. I mean a lot. He averages taking about 20 shots per game, which is twice as many as anyone else. Not sure how i'd play them. Their PG's aren't that big and don't try to score really. Hopefully that keeps Talley out of foul trouble. But that's where the problems start. Who can cover Foreman? Probably nobody. Their overall stats look a lot like ours, but they rely heavily on Foreman to score.

I think i'd press a bit more, and pick him up full court in an attempt to keep the ball out of his hands as much as possible. Then, if he does get the ball it will be later in the shot clock. I kind of like the idea of Brown using his quickness to hound him and keep the ball out of his hands as a rotates in for Talley and Taylor.

On offense, i'd have Talley drive on them a lot. See if he can draw some fouls on Gustys or kick out to Taylor and Fornes for the 3. Bryan should match up well this game since their big men don't step out side to shoot. This will probably be a battle in the paint, with TO's deciding the game. Hofstra is good at turning it over.

This feels like an opportunity to grab a difficult road win.

Hawks 75
Hofs 71
