HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. – Hofstra stepped onto the basketball court with the nation’s No. 3 scorer Thursday night and then quickly showed Delaware it is hardly a one-man show.As a result, the Blue Hens left the Mack Sports Complex with a 90-63 Colonial Athletic Association defeat and a vivid reminder about the necessity for incessant defense.“We just didn’t really do a good job of getting after their shooters,” Delaware senior guard Anthony Mosley said, “and we didn’t really play the defense we normally play out there... I felt like we didn’t put forth enough effort to win that game.” NFL: Foles considered retirement, now on cusp of Super Bowl HIGH SCHOOLS: Defense carries Hodgson to win Hofstra 6-foot-1 junior guard Justin Wright-Foreman, whose 25.6 points per game were third nationally coming in, was just third on his team with 15 points behind backcourt mates Eli Pemberton’s 21 and Desure Buie’s 20. … [Read more...] about On guard!

University of Richmond football coach Russ Huesman heads into his second season with a formidable task: replacing the most productive passer in school history. Kyle Lauletta, a three-year starter, was named Most Outstanding Player in the Senior Bowl, will participate in the NFL Combine, and is projected as an NFL draft pick. Lauletta is one of nine starters gone from UR’s 6-5 team that went 4-4 in CAA play, but his loss will be the most obvious when the Spiders begin spring ball on March 20. Huesman’s view on the QB position, and other football matters: What are the Spiders going to do at quarterback? “It’ll be a big spring for (junior) Kevin Johnson and (sophomore) Joe Mancuso because it’s not Kyle Lauletta’s team anymore. It’s been Kyle’s team for a while and those guys now need to take control.” Johnson was Richmond’s quarterback for three games in the 2016 FCS playoffs after Lauletta was injured, so is it safe … [Read more...] about UR’s Russ Huesman on life without Kyle Lauletta, recruiting, CAA being ‘a pain in the neck’
