Hofstra 58, Rider 48

LAWRENCEVILLE -- Rider was cold early and inefficient late. That meant an early-second half surge wasn't enough in what ended as an ugly 58-48 loss to Hofstra Monday night at Alumni Gym.

Charles Jenkins scored 19 points to lead a balanced scoring attack, and the Pride beat the Broncs for the second straight year, sending Rider to its second straight home loss after a four-game winning streak.

The Broncs, who ranked at or near the top of the national leaderboard in 3-point percentage for their first five games, shot 21 percent (6-for-28) from beyond the arc and only 34 percent (20-for-59) from the floor.

"Really no excuses," said Rider coach Tommy Dempsey. "We played poorly, I coached poorly. Just a group effort. Everyone was bad, from the coaches to the players, right on down the line. There's really no excuse for it. We'll get here early in the morning and try to get better."

Rider (4-3) has scored 60 points or fewer twice in a row after scoring no fewer than 67 in its first five games.

When is novar going to realize that he is not a 3 point shooter or perimeter player. Get on the low block. He can be the next charron fisher....nobody will be able to check him if he gets some good post moves and he'll be a monster on the boards.
