Towson Tigers at Hofstra Pride

Towson is a disappointing 8-9 in the CAA and they’ll face Hofstra, who is a surprising 11-6 on Saturday afternoon. The Tigers have lost two straight, while Hofstra has won three straight. These teams met on Jan. 11 in Maryland with the Pride winning at the buzzer on a 3-pointer from Jalen Ray, 76-73.

Towson is struggling down the stretch

Towson started the season at 10-1, winning 10 straight games. But in the conference, they’ve struggled and have not won two straight games since mid-January. The Tigers fell at Northeastern, 80-75 from Boston on Thursday night. They played without starting point guard Brian Starr (illness) but turned the ball over just 10 times. However, Towson struggled on the defensive end, allowing the Huskies to shoot 53.2 percent from the floor and 12-of-25 from beyond the arc (48%). On the bright side, Towson forced 17 turnovers and sophomore Justin Gorham scored a career-high 28 points with 12 boards on 10-of-18 shooting. Sophmore Zane Martin, the team’s leading scorer, struggled with 11 points on 5-of-16 shooting (1-5 FT, 0-2 3pt) before fouling out in 28 minutes.

Martin is the key for the Tigers, leading the squad with 19.4 points per game on 45.8 percent shooting (37% 3pt). Senior Mike Morsell adds 14.1 points and 30 steals on 45.1 percent shooting (36.8% 3pt). On the season, Towson averages 75.5 points per game on 46.2 percent shooting (35.8% 3pt). They allow 71.6 points per game on 43.3 percent shooting (34.7% 3pt).

Hofstra crushes Dukes on the road

The CAA schedule has not made a whole lot of sense this season. Hofstra had to face Drexel and William & Mary last week at home on Thursday and Saturday. This week, they had to travel to Harrisonburg to face James Madison on Thursday and now are at home in Long Island to take on Towson on Saturday. The Pride started out strong in their win over the Dukes, leading by 12 at the half and cruised to the 77-61 win. Eli Pemberton led the Pride with 22 points and six assists, while Ray added 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting off the bench. Leading scorer Justin Wright-Foreman was held to 11 points and five turnovers on 4-of-12 shooting. Hofstra shot 56.5 percent from the floor and 9-of-18 from beyond the arc. They held JMU to 41.4 percent shooting and 5-of-20 from beyond the arc.

Wright-Foreman leads the Pride with 24.1 points per game and 3.1 assists on 45 percent shooting (36.6% 3pt). Pemberton has been very good as of late, averaging 16.3 points per game on the season and 20.8 points over his last seven games. On the season, Hofstra averages 77.8 points per game on 46.2 percent shooting (37.4% 3pt). They allow 76.6 points per game on 47.6 percent shooting (35.8% 3pt).

NCAAB Trends:

Towson is:

  • 1-7 ATS last 8 overall.
  • 2-8 ATS last 10 road games.

Hofstra is:

  • 15-36-1 ATS last 52 home games.

Towson had been 0-7 ATS their last 7 games before covering at the buzzer against Northeastern. This is a team in bad shape right now going up against the third-best squad in the league. Pemberton and Wright-Foreman should go off against a team that has struggled defensively since losing Deshaun Moreman, who left the team a few weeks ago.

Pick: Hofstra
