Hofstra adds a point guard

Steve Mejia, a transfer from the University of Rhode Island, is joining the Hofstra Pride, head coach Mo Cassara announced on Thursday.

Mejia, a 5-foot-9 point guard, will have to sit out the coming season, and then will have two more years of eligibility remaining.

As a sophomore last season, Mejia led the Atlantic 10 and was eighth in the country in assist-to-turnover ratio. He had 127 assists, and only 46 turnovers, for a team that reached the semifinals of the NIT.
