The Hofstra Men’s Basketball team officially began the 2014-15 season on Monday as the squad held its first official team practice.

Head Coach Joe Mihalich and his staff kept his team busy throughout the two-plus hour practice, which was held at the brand-new Hofstra Basketball Practice Facility.

The season begins on November 14 when the Pride hosts Jacksonville at the David S. Mack Sports and Exhibition Complex as part of a doubleheader with the women’s basketball team. The ladies will host Central Connecticut State at 6 p.m., followed by the men hosting the Dolphins.

For season and individual game ticket information please call the Hofstra Athletics Box Office at (516) HOF-TIXX.

Fans will have their first chance to see the Pride next Thursday, October 16 when the program hosts MIDNIGHT MADNESS at the Mack Sports Complex.

The event will take place from 8 – 9:30 p.m.

As part of the events of the evening, Head Coaches Joe Mihalich and Krista Kilburn-Steveskey will be joined by the voice of the Mack Sports Complex, Siddique Farooqi, as we introduce YOUR 2014-15 Hofstra Pride Basketball teams. This will be your first opportunity to see both teams on the court as they each will take part in a short intrasquad scrimmage!

There will be plenty of games, contests and giveaways during the night to keep everyone pumped up and excited about the upcoming basketball seasons.

The first 750 Hofstra fans in attendance (students included) will receive an EXCLUSIVE Midnight Madness gold jersey t-shirt with the number 14 on it (representing the start of the 2014-15 season and the home opener on November 14). We look forward to seeing our fans and students wearing their gold t-shirts on opening night!
