UAlbany Women vs. Hofstra: Pride surge by Danes

Anma Onyeuku topped three double-digit scorers with 15 points and added eight rebounds to help Hofst

Anma Onyeuku topped three double-digit scorers with 15 points and added eight rebounds to help Hofstra edge the University at Albany women’s basketball team, 60-56, Wednesday at the Mack Sports Complex.

Kelly Loftus and Krystal Luciano added 14 and 13 points, respectively, for the 5-6 Pride.

Shereesha Richards recorded her seventh double-double of the season with 23 points and 16 rebounds for the Great Danes, who slipped to 9-3. Erin Coughlin matched her career-high with four three-pointers and finished with 12 points, while Megan Craig added 11 points and five rebounds.

The Great Danes failed to make a basket for more than 10 minutes in the first half to help the Pride earn a 28-28 halftime draw.

The Great Danes led, 51-46, late in the game, but the Pride rallied and Loftus nailed a baseline jumper to give Hofstra a 55-53 advantage.

Loftus hit a pair of foul shots with three seconds left to clinch the win.

“Hofstra played great today, and we lost a tough game,” said UAlb­any head coach Katie Abramson-Henderson.

The Great Danes complete their non-conference schedule Saturday at Northeastern.
