The Stony Brook softball team will be flying back to Long Island on cloud nine after winning all five of their games this weekend at The Spring Games. They cruised to victory in both of their games on Sunday, Feb. 23, beating the Georgetown Hoyas 2-1 in the morning and then shutting out the Cornell Big Red 7-0 in the afternoon.
When Vermont redshirt-senior guard Everett Duncan hit a trifecta of 3-pointers over a two and a half minute span to put his team up by 12 points with under two minutes remaining in the game, he made sure to glare at the same people who had harassed him for hours — this time, with a smirk on his face.
With 19 seconds left and the Stony Brook men’s basketball team down by just two against the Yale Bulldogs, sophomore guard Miles Latimer fired a shot from behind the three-point line, having missed all of his downtown attempts on the night so far. Island Federal Credit Union Arena erupted in raucous cheer as the ball sank through the net to give the Seawolves a 62-61 lead, but the excitement was short-lived as the Bulldogs would force overtime and ultimately reign victorious 74-69 in the season opener.
Needing a win to remain afloat in the America East playoff picture, the Stony Brook volleyball team began the second wave of conference play by taking down the Hartford Hawks in four sets on Friday, Oct. 25, improving to 8-13 (3-3 AE).
After a pair of losses at home and coming off the bye-week, the Stony Brook football team looked to take down a top-five nationally ranked team. The final, 36-35, does not truly reflect what occurred during the game. It was a tale of two very different halves.
