After finishing over .500 in the non-conference half of their schedule, the Seawolves (8-5, 2-0 CAA) pulled off a pair of impressive victories to start their tenure in the CAA. They kicked things off with an 89-61 blowout win over the William & Mary Tribe on Friday. On Sunday, they celebrated New Year’s Day with a 67-55 comeback win at the Hofstra Pride.
The Seawolves traveled down to Newark, New Jersey and took two out of three games from NJIT. A couple of good pitching performances along with some hot hitting helped Stony Brook win their sixth conference series of the year.
The Seawolves continued their up-and-down season with a 9-2 loss on April 27 to the Stags. The game marked head coach Matt Senk’s 1500th career game coached with Stony Brook, making him one of 15 active coaches in the NCAA to reach that milestone.
“We were unselfish today,” head coach Anthony Gilardi said. “If you look at the box score a lot of guys got involved. Just like our last game against Dartmouth, the more guys we have on the scoresheet the better offense we are playing.”
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.
