What to Know

Get ready for a Colonial battle as the Hofstra Pride and the James Madison Dukes will face off at 2 p.m. ET Saturday at Mack Sports Complex. James Madison will be strutting in after a victory while Hofstra will be stumbling in from a loss.

The Pride entered their matchup against the Towson Tigers on Thursday without any home losses — but there’s a first time for everything. Hofstra came up short against Towson, falling 78-68. Guard Darlinstone Dubar had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: he finished with only five points on 2-for-10 shooting in his 29 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, James Madison didn’t have too much breathing room in their contest with the Northeastern Huskies on Thursday, but they still walked away with a 76-71 win. The Dukes’ guard Vado Morse looked sharp as he shot 5-for-8 from beyond the arc and finished with 25 points.

The Pride are the favorite in this one, with an expected 7.5-point margin of victory. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.

Hofstra is now 13-9 while James Madison sits at 13-7. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Hofstra ranks 23rd in college basketball when it comes to turnovers per game, with only 10.6 on average. But James Madison comes into the game boasting the 22nd most takeaways per game in college basketball at 16.8. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.
