The same old demons that haunted the Seawolves all year dealt one final blow as No. 2-seeded Stony Brook (20-13) watched its season end in heartbreaking fashion with a 64-58 loss to the No. 3-seeded Hartford Hawks (18-15) on Tuesday, March 10, at Island Federal Arena in the America East semifinals.
Stony Brook Athletics announced in a press release on Monday, March 9, that they are monitoring attendance of all indoor sporting events and will allow fans the opportunity to acquire tickets at a safe distance from other spectators.
Having conceded first place in the America East after Wednesday’s loss to Hartford, the Stony Brook men’s basketball team reclaimed the top spot in the conference on Saturday, Jan. 18. Stony Brook (13-7, 4-1) rebounded from a close road defeat with a 70-62 victory over the Albany Great Danes (10-9, 3-1) at the Island Federal Credit Union Arena, snapping its opponent’s 4-game win streak in the process.
A one-sided affair that shouldn’t have been as close as it was, featuring only five total shots from Stony Brook compared to New Hampshire’s (UNH) astounding 25 total shots, left the Seawolves lucky to walk out having only lost by one goal on Friday, Oct. 4 in Durham, New Hampshire.
