CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Jordon Talley hit five 3-pointers and tied the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament record with a career-high 37 points to help UNC Wilmington beat Hofstra 93-88 on Sunday night.
The sixth-seeded Seahawks (11-20) will play No. 2 seed Northeastern in the semifinals Monday. UNCW lost both regular-season matchups with the Huskies.
No. 3 seed Hofstra (19-12) led by as many as 12 points in the first half, but Talley had seven points and Ty Taylor scored five during a 16-3 run that gave UNCW a 66-61 lead with 11 minutes left. Justin Wright-Foreman made back-to-back 3s - the second of which he converted into a 4-point play - to spark a 12-4 spurt that put the Pride up 79-77 with 3:41 to play, but Talley converted a 3-point play, Taylor hit a 3-pointer and Talley added a layup to make it 85-82. Desure Buie's 3-pointer pulled Hofstra within one with 30 seconds to go, but Talley and Jaylen Fornes each hit two free throws to seal it.
