Hofstra 88 UNC - Wilmington 81 (OT)
Hofstra should have won the game in regulation since they led the entire time until UNC - Wilmington tied the game with seconds left to play. Hofstra retired the number of Rich Laurel who played from 1973-77. The strange thing was that he was not there to be honored. It certainly would make sense to have this ceremony at a time when he could be there.
