The Associated PressFebruary 26, 2012

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) Mike Moore had 30 points to lead five double-figure scorers for Hofstra in a 93-64 rout of UNC Wilmington on Saturday, a season-high point output for the Pride.

Nathaniel Lester added 20 points for Hofstra (10-21, 3-15 Colonial Athletic Association), which has won two of three games for the first time since December. Shemiye McLendon, Stevie Mejia and Stephen Nwaukoni scored 10 points each for the Pride.

Dwan McMillan added a game-high 15 assists and Nwaukoni chipped in a game-high 10 rebounds.

The Seahawks were up 14-11 less than eight minutes in, but Moussa Kone's jumper, Moore's 3 and Lester's dunk on consecutive Pride possessions sparked an 18-4 run and they led the rest of the way.

The Pride took a 20-point advantage into the locker room and outscored the Seahawks 48-39 in the second half to seal it.

Keith Rendleman led UNC Wilmington (9-20, 5-13) with 16 points.
