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.
Iroegbu banked home a three-fourths court shot at the end of the first half, and the Seawolves used that shot to coast to an 81-68 victory over the UMass Lowell River Hawks on Thursday night at the Island Federal Credit Union Arena.
Five Seawolves scored in double figures, led by senior guard Bryan Sekunda tying his career high with 21 points to lead the Seawolves to a 101-58 victory over the Bears at the Island Federal Credit Union Arena.
Last season, the Stony Brook men’s basketball team faced an uphill battle the likes of which they had not seen in years. Critics and reporters did not give the Seawolves the time of day, ranking them seventh out of nine teams in the America East preseason rankings just before the 2016-2017 season kicked off.
