CAA Tournament: Hofstra Defeats William & Mary 72-56 To Advance To CAA Semi-Finals

The surprising Cinderella run of the William & Mary Tribe has come to an end. The Tribe entered the Tournament as the 11th overall seed and knocked off the James Madison Dukes in the opening round, but the Hofstra Pride were just too much for them.

Hofstra put on an impressive defensive display, limiting the Tribe to under 30 points in each half. William & Mary had only one player score in double-figures. That would be Marcus Kitts, and that wouldn't be nearly enough to defeat the Pride.

Hofstra didn't necessarily shoot well - they hit only 42.6% of their shots, but this game was never really close, as the Pride had four players score in double-figures. Charles Jenkins led all scorers with 20 points, while Brad Kelleher chipped in 13 points, Mike Moore had 11, and David Imes had 10 points and eight rebounds.

With tonight's win, Hofstra will move on to the CAA Semi-finals, where they will meet the Old Dominion Monarchs. These two teams haven't faced each other since Jan. 15, a game that ODU won 75-64.
