Despite being surprisingly absent from his usual place in the starting lineup, junior forward Elijah Olaniyi set new career highs as the Stony Brook men’s basketball team overcame an early deficit to blow by the Brown Bears (5-4) by a final score of 79-63, improving to 7-3 having won seven of their last eight games.
The Stony Brook Women’s Basketball team fell to 6-3 in conference play as the University of Hartford’s freshman guard Morgan Lumb scored a career-high 17 points. Lumb was one of three Hawks players who finished the game in double figures. Coming off a loss to Albany, the Seawolves were looking to recover quickly with a win against the Hawks who have an overall record of 9-13. Unfortunately the team fell 61-48 to Hartford on Super Bowl Sunday.
