BOSTON — Rokas Gustys, Juan'ya Green and Denton Koon each had double-doubles and Hofstra outlasted Northeastern on Thursday night for a 96-92, triple-overtime victory.

Northeastern (12-8, 4-3 Colonial) had an offensive rebound and trailed 93-92 with 12 seconds left in the third overtime when the referees stopped play at 9.1 seconds to review if the shot hit the rim to reset the shot clock. They ruled that the shot did hit the rim, but after the stoppage, the Huskies failed to inbound, turning it over with a 5-second violation.

That led to Brian Bernardi's pair of free throws to make it 95-92 with 7.9 seconds left. The Pride (13-6, 5-2) fouled Quincy Ford at half court, he missed the front-end of a one-and-one and Koon made 1 of 2 free throws to seal the win.

Gustys had 23 points and 20 rebounds to record back-to-back 20-20 games after his 25-point, 20-rebound performance in an 86-82 loss to James Madison on Saturday. Green had 23 points and 14 assists, and Koon had 22 points and 11 rebounds.

Zach Stahl had 19 points and 11 rebounds, David Walker had 18 points and 13 assists and Ford scored 19 for Northeastern, which made a school-record 16 3-pointers.

Hofstra outrebounded Northeastern 60-32.
