Head Coach Beth O'Boyle's Reaction
"I think in the second half, our full-court pressure helped us get opportunities. We used our athleticism to change the tempo of the game. It was a good team effort."
The Seawolves never trailed, but Binghamton stayed within six points during the opening 20 minutes and tied it at 26-all before halftime on a buzzer-beating jump shot by Sherae Swinson.
The second of back-to-back Albrecht baskets evened the score at 32-32 at the 15:09 mark of the second half, the last field goal the Bearcats would tally for the nearly 11 minutes.
With 12:37 left, Jenkins came away with a steal that led to a Kim Hanlon trifecta and 35-32 Stony Brook lead. Bayne-Walker tallied eight of the next 11 points for the Seawolves on two buckets and four free throws, putting them ahead by 13, 46-33, when she drove inside for a layup with 6:42 remaining. The rookie found Hanlon for a jump shot at 4:44, converted a three-point play at 4:02 and knocked down two shots from the charity stripe at 3:30 as the margin ballooned to 18, 53-35.
