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.
