MEN, Hofstra 90, Delaware 63: The Pride shot 61 percent from the field in the second half to pull away to the Colonial Athletic Association victory.

The Blue Hens (11-9, 4-3 CAA) saw their three-game winning streak snapped while losing at Hofstra (12-7, 5-2) for the fourth straight season.

Freshman guard Ryan Allen paced Delaware with 16 points, while Anthony Mosley contributed 15. Ryan Daly chipped in 13 points and a team-best eight rebounds, reaching double figures for the 18th game in a row.

Delaware shot 44.8 percent but was just 2-of-13 from three-point range.

“Hofstra is a talented offensive team,” said UD coach Martin Ingelsby. “We let them get confident, and at that point they’re hard to defend. We got off to a good start offensively, but missed some free throws and got careless with the ball to let them get out in transition late in the half.

“We didn’t have any answers for them in the second half. We let our offense affect our defense, and didn’t dig or communicate the way we needed to.”
