Stony Brook’s baseball team is no longer undefeated against America East opponents. The Seawolves blew an early lead against the UMass Lowell Riverhawks on Saturday, April 10, but still won three out of four games in the series.
The Stony Brook men’s basketball team was going to enter the America East Tournament. Although success from beyond the arc in a first game win offered hope that the team was turning a corner, the Seawolves could not carry it over to the second game.
If last season was a transition year for head coach Geno Ford, this season looks to be a complete re-tooling. Stony Brook not only saw Olaniyi transfer out, but three other starters walked out alongside him — as well as some key bench players.
“UAlbany was a very well-coached team and they are a handful offensively,” head coach Tobias Bischof said in a press release. “We thought we had a good game plan and we did a good job of following it, taking advantage of the chances we had. We work on set pieces a lot in practice so it was nice to see us take advantage tonight.”
In a key conference matchup at home on Saturday, senior guard Jaron Cornish helped Stony Brook Men’s Basketball bounce back from a first-half slump to beat UMass-Lowell by a final score of 76-65. Cornish dropped his career-high 30 points against the River Hawks.
