Wright-Foreman, Pemberton lead Hofstra to rout

By The Associated Press

KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) — Justin Wright-Foreman and Eli Pemberton combined to score 35 points and Hofstra routed Kennesaw State 78-52 on Saturday.

Wright-Foreman finished with 20 points, five rebounds and five assists for the Pride (5-3), who won back-to-back games for the first time this season. Wright-Foreman has scored in double figures for 61 straight games. Pemberton sank a 3-pointer at the 14:02 mark of the first half to become the 37th Hofstra player to top 1,000 points in a career. Jalen Ray scored 10.

Tyler Hooker paced the Owls (1-8) with 16 points, six rebounds and six assists. Ugo Obineke and Bryson Lockley added 13 points apiece.

Kennesaw State made just 8 of 33 shots from the floor (24 percent) in the first half and trailed 37-22 at intermission.

Hofstra held the Owls to 0-of-9 shooting from 3-point range. It marked the first time the Pride held an opponent without a 3-pointer since holding James Madison to 0-for-11 shooting in 2014.
