Delaware @ Hofstra

Current Records: Delaware 13-7; Hofstra 14-6

What to Know

The Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the Hofstra Pride at 6:30 p.m. ET on Thursday at Mack Sports Complex. Delaware has some work to do to even out the 1-9 series between these two since December of 2015, but a win here would be a good start.

The Fightin' Blue Hens escaped with a win against the Elon Phoenix by the margin of a single free throw, 79-78.

Speaking of close games: Hofstra needed just a quick three to secure the win on Saturday, but they couldn't get it done before the clock hit zeroes and lost 69-67 to the College of Charleston Cougars.

Delaware isn't expected to pull this one out (Hofstra is favored by 7), but if it comes down to a funny bounce or two, they might get lucky. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that Delaware is 3-0 against the spread when expected to lose.

Delaware's victory lifted them to 13-7 while Hofstra's loss dropped them down to 14-6. We'll see if the Fightin' Blue Hens can repeat their recent success or if the Pride bounce back and reverse their fortune.
