Hofstra just finished an 87-74 win over Georgia State, securing a winning record in the Colonial Athletic Association. The latter didn't look possible a month ago, when the Pride was hit with injuries and had trouble holding serve on its own court. But Hofstra wound up winning its last six games and concluded the regular season with a 10-8 conference record, 18-13 overall.

       Senior Cornelius Vines left the court for a final time with 1:38 left, holding his arms high to acknowledge the crowd.

        Charles Jenkins, a junior, left with 45.9 seconds left and 29 points.

       A punctuation mark was a three-ponter by walk-on Matt Grogan in the final minute. 

        Now it's on to the conference tournament, which looks to be up for grabs this year.
