UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) Dion Nesmith scored a career-high 27 points and Hofstra hit enough free throws down the stretch to hold off Hartford 81-78 in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Saturday night.

Hofstra (2-3) hit 6 of 8 free throws, the last by Nesmith producing the three-point advantage with 16 seconds left. Then the Pride forced a final turnover by Hartford (2-4).

Nesmith's three-point play at 8:08 tied the game and about 90 seconds later he put the Pride up for good with two free throws. Hofstra was 31 of 41 from the line with Nesmith making 8 of 11. Zek Upshaw, who made to clutch free throws in the final minute, added 12 points.
