Hofstra Heads To Steel City For Match-Up With Duquesne

The Hofstra Men’s Basketball team will look for its first win of the season on Saturday when it travels to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to face Duquesne. 

Tip-off from the UPMC Cooper Fieldhouse is scheduled for 7 p.m. 

Saturday’s game will air on ESPN+ and WRHU (88.7) will also carry the game on the HAWC starting with a 6:45 p.m. pregame show. 

Hofstra is coming off a heart-breaking 83-75 overtime loss at #15 Houston to open the season. Graduate student Zach Cooks led the Pride with 26 points in his Hofstra debut and was joined in double figures by junior Aaron Estrada (15 points) and senior Omar Silverio (13 points). Redshirt senior Abayomi Iyiola tallied 11 rebounds and six points in his Pride debut. 

Duquesne is 1-0 after earning a 73-61 win over Rider in its season opener on Tuesday. Kevin Easley led the Dukes with 16 points, while Tre Williams (14), Primo Spears (14), and Leon Ayers III (12) joined him in double figures. 

This will mark the second-ever meeting between Hofstra and Duquesne in men’s basketball. The Pride earned a 76-70 win over the Dukes during the 1976-77 season.
