Pride Talk; Pride Men and Women prepare for conference tournaments

With the regular season winding down, the Hofstra Men’s and Women’s basketball teams are preparing for what should be an interesting tournament.  The men are riding high, finishing the season 15-3 in the CAA, 25-6 overall, and claiming the #1 overall seed in the CAA Tournament.

The women on the other hand have been struggling all season and with a 3-13 conference record they find themselves near the cellar of the CAA.  They’ll most likely be a nine or ten seed with little chance of making it out of the first round.

Men’s Notes

  • Justin Wright-Foreman was recently named a finalist for the Jerry West Award, given to the top shooting guard in the country.  He’s mentioned in the same breath as R.J. Barrett of Duke and Kyle Guy of Virginia, two of the top players in the country.  Barrett is projected to be a top three pick in this year’s NBA Draft.  It’s well deserved for the senior guard, as he’s average 26.8 PPG (second in NCAA) and is fourth on Hofstra’s all-time scoring list.
  • Wright-Foreman and the Pride were recently named to “mid-major teams to watch” in Sports Illustrated magazine.  With the #1 seed in the CAA Tournament, expectations are sky high for the Pride.


Women’s Notes

  • Although the women will most likely wind up with the nine or ten seed in the tournament, anything can happen.  This is March Madness and we’ve seen plenty of low seeded teams sneak into the tournament via a conference crown.
  • The Pride do have a lot of talent on their team, they just haven’t necessarily been able to put it together.  Boogie Brozoski leads the team with 15.3 PPG and 4.0 APG.  If she gets hot, look out for the Pride women.
