New assistant coach Bill Wilson will have a homecoming of sorts as, the No. 12 men’s lacrosse team (1-1) heads to Long Island to take on No. 17 Hofstra (1-1) tomorrow afternoon. Wilson, formerly the defensive coordinator of the Pride, spent six seasons at Hofstra and is credited with bringing the program back into national prominence. Now at Cornell, Wilson will be standing on the other side of James Shuart Stadium, as the Red looks to earn its second win of the season.

Of his return to Hempstead, Wilson said, “I spent six years down at Hofstra and it will be a bit of a homecoming for me, to see the coaching staff and the players. But I’m looking forward to it; it should be a lot of fun. Hofstra graduated a lot of guys, but they certainly have a good number of them coming back. With their up tempo style of play they are going to be a good opponent this weekend.”

Head coach Jeff Tambroni hopes that the team will overall play a stronger more complete game this weekend. “I think in general we want to gain some confidence on both ends of the field,” he said. “I still don’t think we have played the 60-minute game
