The Stony Brook men’s basketball team had a quick turnaround after suffering a nationally-televised loss against Vermont on Thursday. Heading into the final games of the regular season, a win over one of the bottom teams in Division I was crucial to securing a top-2 seed and multiple home games in the conference playoffs.
This Sunday, the Stony Brook men’s basketball team hosted the Albany Great Danes in their final contest of the regular season. The Seawolves, having secured the second seed in the conference tournament, played mostly to prevent a semi final matchup against the Great Danes in Albany. It was, however, the final game to be played in Pritchard Gymnasium barring a finals appearance without Vermont. It was a fitting swan song for the venue, as the Seawolves prevailed 73-68 in a down-to-the-wire thriller.
