Head Coach Jim Nagle's Reaction
"Duke's a very good offensive team, especially in the half field, and we weren't able to match their intensity. We struggled with Duke's range on defense. Our second half was better. We shared the ball better and capitalized on opportunities."

Turning Point
Duke jumped out to a 4-0 lead after the first quarter and led 7-0 at halftime. Wolf scored two of the first seven goals. Schultz put the Seawolves on the board with an unassisted tally a minute into the third quarter. Eastwood's first of the game got Stony Brook within six, 8-2, with 6:12 left in the third.
