Following a disappointing season, the Stony Brook men’s basketball team now finds itself in uncharted territory. With a new conference, new players and low expectations, the Seawolves will look to prove the doubters wrong in their 2022-23 campaign.
After 21 years, the Seawolves’ America East chapter was officially finished with an 87-68 victory over the NJIT Highlanders. After a flurry of off-court controversy and difficulties, it brings the season to an end.
With the Seawolves’ poor defense and two late charging fouls being unable to stop another loss in the final seconds, Stony Brook (13-10, 5-5 AE) was handed its third straight loss, this one 67-65 at home Monday night against New Hampshire.
On the road against its bitter rival, the Stony Brook men’s basketball team used a strong second half despite only seven players seeing court time to put away the Albany Great Danes 86-75 on Saturday, Jan. 22.
The Stony Brook men’s basketball team almost let another second-half lead slip away from them before ultimately reigning victorious on the road over the Binghamton Bearcats 74-71 on Wednesday, Jan. 19.
Even without many key offensive pieces, the Stony Brook men’s basketball team performed as expected and made easy work of the Division III Farmingdale State Rams on Wednesday, Dec. 29 in its final tune-up before the beginning of conference play.
