Stony Brook Women’s Basketball fended off the Cornell Big Red’s late comeback attempt in a thrilling 63-61 victory on Saturday, Dec. 1. “I thought that we came out a little slow compared to how we had been playing so I like how we were able to come from behind,” head coach Caroline McCombs said in a press conference.
Despite trailing 22-0 in the first half and committing an accidental technical foul in the closing seconds of the game, Stony Brook Men’s Basketball fought back and won 77-74 in overtime over George Washington University in the season opener on Tuesday, Nov. 7.
“The guys competed very well today, taking seventh out of 23 teams, with 5 of the 6 teams in front of us ranked in the top 30 in the Nation,” head coach Andy Ronan said in a press release. “It’s early season but I felt it was important for us to run well against our regional opponents. Finishing in front of Dartmouth, Boston University and Providence was encouraging at this stage.”
