Hofstra improved to 16-3 overall and 6-0 in Colonial Athletic Association play. The 13-game win streak is the fourth-longest overall in program history and the second-longest since Hofstra joined the Division I level in 1966-67. No Hofstra team has started CAA play with six straight wins since joining the league in 2001-02.
Down 42-41 at halftime, Hofstra started the second stanza on a 21-9 run with Pemberton scoring six points. Ty Gadsen's layup brought UNC Wilmington (7-12, 3-3) within 62-53, but Dan Dwyer made a pair of free throws with 7:44 left and the Pride led by double digits the rest of the way.
