HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) Rokas Gustys scored 17 points, hauled in 16 rebounds and hit a key free throw with seven seconds left to help Hofstra hold off Northeastern for a 65-60 win Sunday.

Denton Koon contributed 19 points, Juan'ya Green had 13 points and Ameen Tanksley 12 for Hofstra (20-8, 12-4 Colonial). The Pride got 18 of 23 from the free-throw line to Northeastern's 2 for 4 to pick up their fourth straight win.
