Who’s Gone: All-CAA Second Team guard Zeke Upshaw (19.8 ppg/4.2 rpg); Guard/Forward Jordan Allen (6.6 ppg/4.8 rpg)
Who’s New: Preseason All-CAA First Team guard Juan’ya Green (Jr., 6-3, transfer from Niagara); Guard Brian Bernardi (So., 6-2, transfer from SMU); Guard/Forward Ameen Tanksley (Jr., 6-6, transfer from Niagara); Forward Rokas Gustys (Fr., 6-9)
Where They’re Picked: Third
Pride in a Nutshell: Hofstra is predicted to vault up the conference standings as three returning starters will be joined by several talented newcomers. The Pride’s strength is in the backcourt, especially with the return of Dion Nesmith. Watch for junior guard Juan’ya Green to make an impression in his first season on the court for the Pride. Green transferred from Niagara after averaging 16.5 points per game.
