It's getting a little old having Cornell be the only college basketball power in the state, so for variety's sake it would be nice to have another team come along with us.

Yo, Hofstra, how about you?!

The Pride is on the line against Northeastern at 6 p.m. on WRHU radio, Verizon FiOS1 and ESPN Full Court.

Win that one, and two others, and they're in!

(UPDATE: Hofstra ended up losing in an exciting game. And a loyal reader pointed out to me that Syracuse is in New York State. Excuse me, but have they clinched an NCAA berth yet? Nope. Next case!)
