New York, NY (Dec. 21) - Freshman guard Chaz Williams (Brooklyn, NY) had a career-high 14 points for the second straight night, but Hofstra never led as it dropped a 61-52 decision to Davidson in the consolation game of the Holiday Festival on Monday evening at Madison Square Garden.

With the loss, the Pride drops to 7-5 on the year, while Davidson, which was led by 18 points from freshman forward Jake Cohen, improves to 4-8 with the win.

After trailing 23-20 at the break, Hofstra pulled back even at 25-25 on a Williams three-pointer, then knotted the score at 27-27 on a jump hook from senior forward Miklos Szabo (Szeghalom, Hungary), the sixth tie of the game. However, Davidson senior forward Will Archambault hit back-to-back three-pointers to give the Wildcats a 33-27 lead they would not relinquish. A fast break lay-up from junior guard Charles Jenkins (Queens, NY) cut the lead to 33-29, but Davidson scored the next six points to forge ahead 39-29 with 12:15 to play on a short jumper from senior forward Steve Rossiter, capping off a 12-2 run.
