1. "Hempstead, NY – Hofstra Basketball legend and current Assistant Coach Craig “Speedy” Claxton was inducted into the New York City Basketball Hall of Fame last night.

The ceremony took place at the New York Athletic Club and the organization inducted seven individuals and one team into the hall of fame.

In addition to Claxton, also inducted last night was Hugh Evans, Charlie Davis, Felipe Lopez, Michael Riordan, Jack Rohan, Tom Owens and the 1993 Christ The King High School Girls Basketball team.

Claxton, one of the all-time greats in the history of the Hofstra Basketball program, joined the Hofstra staff after spending the previous two seasons as a scout with the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

Claxton graduated from Hofstra in 2000 as one of only six players in school history to score 2,000 career points (2,015). He also graduated as the program’s all-time leader in both assists (660) and steals (288), and was a two-time Player of the Year selection in the America East Conference (1998, 2000). He was also named the 2000 winner of the Haggerty Award, given to the top player in the Metropolitan New York area, after leading Hofstra to an America East Conference championship and its first NCAA Division I tournament berth in 23 years.”
