For Thursday’s college hoops action, we take a deep dive into the CAA and Pac-12.

Will UNC Wilmington right the ship with a new head coach against Hofstra And can Colorado keep its stellar season on track at Arizona State?

UNC Wilmington vs. Hofstra

  • Spread: Hofstra -9
  • Over/Under: 143
  • Time: 7 p.m. ET
  • TV: FloSports

UNC Wilmington (5-14) has struggled to replicate the success under former coach Kevin Keatts.

When Keatts took the job at N.C. State, the Seahawks pivoted to longtime Roy Williams assistant coach C.B. McGrath. After a two-year record of 21-44 was followed by a poor start this year, they fired McGrath on Monday after an 11th straight loss.

The Seahawks are 3-6 at home, with four straight losses. UNC Wilmington is just 5-10-1 against the spread and 0-4 in their last four home contests.

Hofstra (13-5) has been a nice surprise again after losing two-time CAA Player of the Year Justin Wright-Foreman to graduation. The Pride have won seven of their last eight games, and are 12-5 ATS.

UNC Wilmington struggles on both sides of the ball and I don’t see that changing under a new coach.
