LIU Black Birds ~ Lose to Hofstra; Start Tourney Monday

From the desk of:  THE HOOPS OF FLATBUSH

Long Island University Black Birds:  Taking Flight...  It's Off to Virginia for "Tip-Off Tourney Time".

Brooklyn's Flatbush Avenue cagers lost their first game of the season 89-71 to Hofstra last Friday.  LIU's Jamal Olasewere led Brooklyn scorers with 13-points.  Guard Jason Brickman followed with 11-points.  C.J. Garner had a team high six assists.

Next for the Black Birds, the 2011 Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off Classic Tournament starts Monday, November 14th in Norfolk, Virginia, where LIU will play Old Dominion in the first of a series of Tournament games.  They will then head to University Park, to play Penn State Wednesday night.  And after a game against Radford next Saturday, LIU's participation in the Tournament concludes Sunday, Nov. 20th, against Marist/Vermont in Connecticut.

The Long Island Black Birds will not make their Flatbush Avenue/Wellness Center debut until December 1st, when they take on Wagner in what will also be their first in-conference match-up

This just in:  The Knicks and Nets were inactive yesterday.  They will not be playing Monday either.  That is all.
