Hofstra owns a 24-18 lead against its Colonial Athletic Association rival, but Towson ended a four-game losing skid with a 10-9 decision in double overtime last year. The No. 19 Pride (6-3, 1-1 in the CAA) have quality wins against No. 1 Notre Dame and Fairfield, but they have also dropped two of their last three contests. Exhaustion could also be a concern for Hofstra, which has played four games in 11 days. The Tigers (5-5, 1-0) have rebounded from a 0-3 start. Thomas DeNapoli has recorded nine goals and five assists in the team's last four contests, and the junior attackman ranks 15th in Division I with 2.7 goals per game.

Among the issues that caught the attention of Towson coach Shawn Nadelen while reviewing Saturday's 9-7 loss to Colonial Athletic Association rival Hofstra, perhaps the most glaring was the offense's shooting woes. Of the 29 shots the team took, only 10 were on goal.
