A clutch shot, a steal, and another win. These are the things graduate guard Kaela Hilaire supplied Stony Brook with in its 58-54 victory on Wednesday, Feb. 12 against Binghamton at Island Federal Arena.
A showdown between rivals Stony Brook (19-1, 7-0) and Binghamton (13-6, 2-4) displayed a pair of teams with the two best overall records in the America East. The matchup did not disappoint, as neither team separated by more than 12 points during the entire contest.
Trailing 41-38 with eight seconds remaining in the third quarter, Stony Brook Women’s Basketball senior guard Shania “Shorty” Johnson looked to uniquely create an open shot away from the basket against Binghamton. As time continued ticking away, Johnson found her sweet spot around half court and released a high arcing blast.
