It’s Hofstra’s first win streak of at least five games since an eight-game stretch late in the 2015-16 season. The Pride also won their first game in the series, trailing 42-23 all-time, since the 2010-11 campaign.

Hofstra led 35-24 at the break, allowing the second-fewest halftime points by an opponent this season.
