Final Stats

Poughkeepsie, N.Y. - Senior Tommy Brenton (Columbia, Md.) had 12 points, 11 rebounds and five assists, and junior Dave Coley (Brooklyn, N.Y.) had seven points in the final 3:25 to lead the Stony Brook men's basketball team to a 60-57 road victory over Marist Friday night at McCann Arena.

Coach Steve Pikiell's Reaction
"I knew this would be a tough game for us. Marist is very good, and they have good players, but our guys made big plays down the stretch. Dave and Tommy made big plays for us. I was pleased with our execution at the end on defense. We grinded out a victory on the road, which is never easy."

Turning Point
Stony Brook led the entire way until Marist's Chavaughn Lewis drained a jumper at 3:57 to put the Red Foxes up 52-51. It was 54-53 Marist with 2:04 remaining when Brenton found Coley at the top of the key, and the junior guard drilled a three-pointer to put SB back on top 56-54. On the next possession, Lewis was called for a technical foul, giving the Seawolves two free throws at the line. Marist got within one, but Coley sank a pair of free throws, and the Seawolves played great defense to come away a winner.
