BALTIMORE -- Ameen Tanksley scored 23 points and Hofstra edged William & Mary 70-67 in a Colonial Athletic Association tournament semifinal on Sunday.
The top-seeded Pride (24-8) will face No. 2-seed UNC Wilmington (24-7), winners over Northeastern, in the title game on Monday.
A close game throughout, a layup by Hofstra's Denton Koon tied it at 56 during an 8-0 run that left the Pride up by four with 5:46 remaining.
No. 5 seed William & Mary (20-11) came back and tied it at 65 on a 3-pointer by Greg Malinowski with 3:41 to go. But the Tribe scored just one more basket, and Koon's layup with eight seconds left was the difference maker.
Malinowski, who entered the game averaging 7.2 points, led William & Mary with a career-high 22, hitting five 3-pointers.
