Five halftime thoughts: Farmingdale

1.) Not surprisingly, Greg Washington is having his way with the undersized Farmingdale front court. Washington has 13 points—eight shy of his career high—with seven boards and four blocks. He’s also taken five free throws, the first time since January 2009 he’s gone to the line more than four times in a game. Bottle this for Thursday!

2.) Shemiye McLendon didn’t play in the scrimmage Sunday but he’s been impressive today with eight points and two boards in just 11 minutes. He and Mike Moore (nine points and three boards) give Mo Cassara the chance to play a three-guard lineup that features plenty of height and rebounding ability.

3.) David Imes had the basket of the half with a dunk off a miss. He’s a bit undersized for a power forward but displayed the hustle and tenacity that have left two staffs raving.

4.) Charles Jenkins might have a future here: 11 points, 3 boards, two assists, three steals and two blocks in 17 minutes.

5.) Get ready to see a lot of the bench in the second half. Cassara subbed liberally throughout the first 20 minutes and the starters should see plenty of pine with a 19-point halftime lead. My guess is we’ll see Stephen Nwaukoni, Paul Bilbo and Roland Brown score their first Hofstra points as well.

Bonus: These Farmingdale uniforms have got to go. No number on the front? Egads.
