Team preview: Hofstra
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2003-04 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Hofstra coach Tom Pecora hopes that the 2003-04 season is his mulligan.
The reason? In his first two seasons since succeeding Jay Wright (who left Hempstead for Villanova), Pecora has won a grand total of 20 games. That's a far cry from the days when Wright was churning out 20-plus win seasons with current NBA player Speedy Claxton at the point.
