Starting Saturday, Hofstra (12-7, 8-4) and James Madison (11-5, 6-1) will meet up for back-to-back contests against one another in a battle for supremacy in the CAA.
A rare scheduling of two games against the same team back-to-back comes due to the coronavirus pandemic restricting travel throughout the season. Both games are important, as the two teams currently sit at second and third in the conference at this point in the season.

HOFSTRA vs. JAMES MADISON WHAT TO WATCH
- James Madison is on a five-game winning streak entering this contest, but the team hasn't exactly had a chance to hit its groove and play consistently just yet. Due to COVID-19 causing postponements over the past couple of weeks, the Dukes have played just one game since February 3. That came on February 9 in a win over Elon. It will be interesting to see how the team starts out after having more time off. The same can be said for Hofstra, a team that hasn't played since February 7.
- These two teams have not seen each other yet this season, and as mentioned above, the sole two matchups could dictate what happens in the conference. With James Madison in second and Hofstra right behind, a sweep by one side could lead to a close battle at the end of the season.
HOFSTRA VS. JAMES MADISON PLAYERS TO WATCH
Hofstra: Isaac Kante (Jr.), F (13.6 ppg, 10.2 rpg, .63 apg). Kante is averaging a double-double on the season, and that speaks to his ability to put the ball in the basket and dominate the boards. When it comes to winning the battle inside the paint, he will be key in helping Hofstra come out on top.
James Madison: Matt Lewis (Sr.), G (20.6 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 3.6 apg). The senior guard is the heart and soul of James Madison, especially on offense. A talented bucket-getter, he can light it up at any moment.
