Hofstra men's basketball improved to 2-3 on the year with a come-from-behind victory against Wagner on Friday night at the Mack Sports Complex.
Led by Charles Jenkins' hot hand as the contest wound down, the Pride snapped their three-game losing skid.
Jenkins couldn't find his rhythm early on, scoring only two points in the first half and missing his first seven shots from the floor. He came on strong with a late surge and scored 17 points in the second half.
Hofstra trailed by a seven-point margin at the half, but sophomore forward David Imes boosted the offense with a breakout performance. His 14 points and 17 rebounds were career highs.
Hofstra will next be in action when they visit Rider on Monday, Nov. 29, for a 7 p.m. battle.
