“I’m proud of the way we moved the ball and rebounded against a tough UMass Lowell team. It was great to get contributions from a variety of players in a solid road win.”
Down by five, 40-35, after a Samuels layup nearly two minutes into the second half, the Stony Brook offense came alive. Goodman got things started with a put back off a Proctor miss to get the Seawolves within three, 40-37, at 17:47, and a Harris triple capped a 19-2 run that put them ahead, 54-42, with 12 minutes on the clock.
The home team would not go away, whittling the deficit down to as little as seven, 71-64, when Samuels nailed a 3-pointer at 2:32, but Harris calmly knocked down a pair of free throws on the other end and Goodman followed with a layup on a feed from Proctor to put Stony Brook up by double figures for good, 75-64, with just over 90 seconds left.
