After a rough game on Sunday in Iowa against the Hawkeyes, the Stony Brook Women’s basketball team bounced back with a strong performance in a 68-58 win on the road against Fairleigh Dickinson Thursday night.
Traveling on the first possession and having one of the team’s leaders in foul trouble within the opening minutes may not be ideal, but the Stony Brook Women’s Basketball team showed their characteristic fight and tenacity Friday night.
As the old saying goes, defense wins championships. Nobody believes in that philosophy more strongly than third-year coach Beth O’Boyle. In her first two years at the helm of the Stony Brook Women’s Basketball team, her team has finished in the top 50 in the nation in scoring defense.
