    BOSTON (AP) -- Antoine Agudio scored 32 points, including two key baskets in the final 1:32, to lead Hofstra to a 70-65 win over Northeastern on Saturday.

    With Hofstra trailing 65-64, Agudio hit a layup to give his squad the lead for good. He then grabbed a defensive rebound and hit a jumper with 37 seconds left to put Hofstra up 68-65.

    After Matt Janning missed a 3-pointer for Northeastern with 18 seconds left that could have tied it, Charles Jenkins hit two free throws to seal the game for Hofstra (5-13, 3-6 Colonial Athletic Association). Jenkins finished with 11 points.

    Janning led Northeastern (7-12, 3-6) with 17 points while Nkem Ojougboh added 13 and Manny Adako had 11.

    Northeastern started slowly, making only four of its first 23 shots, and trailed for most of the first half. Agudio scored 16 points and Hofstra took a 30-22 lead into halftime.

    But Northeastern rallied. Two free throws by Adako with 8:52 left gave the Huskies a 52-50 lead, their first since 4-2 in the game's opening minutes. Agudio and Jenkins then took over, scoring 18 of Hofstra's final 20 points.
