Hempstead, NY – The Hofstra Men’s Basketball program will make its fifth appearance outside of the continental United States in 2015 when the Pride takes part in the U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam.
“This is truly an exciting announcement for our program,” commented Head Men’s Basketball Coach Joe Mihalich. “We are thrilled to take part in such a prestigious tournament in an exotic location like the Virgin Islands. Our fans, the community and our student-athletes all look forward to some great competition and hospitality in 2015!”
This year marked the 13th edition of the Paradise Jam tournament, which has been played at the 4,000-seat UVI Sports and Fitness Center since 2001.
Previously, Hofstra has competed in tournaments in Puerto Rico (1997 and 2010), Hawaii (1998) and Alaska (2006) to account for its trips outside of the continental United States.
Additional information, including the tournament field and travel packages, will be announced at a future date.
