The Monarchs (23-9) travel to Hempstead, NY to meet CAA rival Hofstra Wednesday night at 7 p.m. in the NIT quarterfinals. The winner earns a trip to Madison Square Gardens next week. ODU defeated Manhattan Monday night, 70-66, while Hofstra beat St. Joseph's, 77-75 in overtime. Four of the five meetings between ODU and Hofstra played in New York have been decided by two points or less. Hofstra is the only team to beat ODU in Norfolk each of the last two years, while the Monarchs were the last team to win on the Pride's home court. The game will be televised live on ESPN2.
