Sunday’s loss in the CAA Semis for the Hofstra Pride men’s basketball team turned out to be the most heartbreaking loss in program history. A game that ended up trending on Twitter and that left everyone on the edge of their seat, ended in a 92-91 William & Mary win in double overtime. The players were emotional after the game, and clearly were devastated by the loss in a game they had a plethora of chances to win.
