In all, eight of Wright's 12 points came in the final 5:17 as the Patriots closed the game on an 18-6 run.

Hofstra's Mike Moore led all scorers with 18 points, while Nathaniel Lester added 14 for the Pride, whose record dropped to 8-18 overall and 2-12 in CAA play.

Mason is back in action on Saturday, as the Patriots hit the road to play UNC-Wilmington. They remain tied atop the CAA standings with Drexel and VCU after the Dragons defeated James Madison and the Rams defeated Towson Wednesday night.
