The Stony Brook’s Women’s Basketball team entered Monday night’s game against the Albany Great Danes with a chance at history. The Seawolves had an opportunity to obtain the first NCAA tournament bid for either basketball program, but fell in the America East Championship game 70-46.
The Stony Brook women’s basketball team was in the dungeons of the America East Conference just a few years back. A new group of coaches and a set of hard-working players later, and the Seawolves have what may be their best chance ever to make the NCAA tournament.
The Stony Brook women’s basketball team ended their regular season schedule with a big statement win on Saturday afternoon. The Seawolves defeated Albany on the road 66-56, and ended the Great Danes’ conference record 38-game winning streak against America East opponents.
For the second time in her career, Chikilra Goodman has been named one of the America East’s players of the week. The senior guard received the honor, after averaging 16.3 points, seven rebounds, and 2.3 steals in three games last week.
