Hofstra's Out Of Conference Opponents

Postby EvanJ » Fri Jan 12, 2018 10:16 pm

Dayton made 17 out of 32 three-pointers in a 106-79 win over VCU. Darrell Davis had 28 points, only missed 1 shot, and had 9 assists, but he didn't lead his team in assists because Jalen Crutcher had 10. Those two players had only 5 assists combined against Hofstra. It was the fourth time this season that teammates had at least 9 assists, and two of the times were against non-Division I teams.

The last two Hofstra out of conference opponents to lose had comebacks fall short in 78-77 losses. Last night North Carolina State was up 3 with the ball with 1.3 seconds left, and had an unusual turnover when the inbounder threw a bounce pass that landed out of bounds. North Carolina State called timeout to ice a free throw shooter on Clemson who got fouled in the act of shooting a 3 while down 3. He made 2 free throws with 0.2 seconds left and missed after the timeout. Tonight Niagara made 2 free throws with 2:45 left to go up 11. Monmouth got the ball down 78-77 with 9 seconds left and had a turnover.

based on RPI, the quality of our in and out of conf schedules are very high this year. As of today we have played 3 teams in the TOP 10 RPI. Has that ever happened before??
We have also played 4 teams in the 50-100 RPI. That's almost half our schedule against top 100 teams. I like it.

Auburn came back from down 13 with 18 minutes left to win 76-68 at Mississippi State. Clemson was down 7 early in their win over Miami. Villanova is 3rd in the RPI, Clemson is 4th, and Auburn is 6th.

And even though I still maintain HU should've been able to win 2 in the Charleston tourney at that stage of the year, I will state here that Clemson and Auburn are very good teams having very good years. Both have become tough outs.
