    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- B.A. Walker had 22 points, hitting six of Virginia Commonwealth's 14 3-pointers Wednesday night, to lead the Rams to a 87-64 win over Hofstra.

    The Rams (3-2, 1-1 Colonial Athletic Association) held the Pride (4-2, 1-1) to one field goal over 13:49. The Pride led by as many as nine points in the early going and had a 26-19 lead following Loren Stokes' jumper with 8:29 remaining.

    Over the remainder of the half, the Pride was 1-of-11 from the field with nine turnovers. Nick George and Alexander Harper each had 6 points as VCU scored 19 of the next 22 points as the Rams opened a 38-29 lead by the intermission.

    Hofstra also missed its first six field goal attempts in the second half before Adrian Uter had a tip-in with 14:40 remaining. By then, VCU had pulled away.

    George matched his season high of 16 points and Jesse Pellot-Rosa had a season-high 15 for Virginia Commonwealth.

    Carlos Rivera led the Pride with 12 points. Stokes had 10, none following his tip-in with 8:29 remaining in the first half. Uter had 10 points and a game-high 15 rebounds as Hofstra dominated the boards 50-28. However, 21 turnovers hurt Hofstra.
