Stony Brook, N.Y. -The Stony Brook women's basketball team claimed a 66-57 victory over Vermont Wednesday in front of more than 1,000 fans and a national audience watching on ESPN3 at Pritchard Gymnasium on Senior/Kids' Day.

Head Coach Beth O'Boyle's Reaction

"I thought it was a good team effort. Vermont plays very hard, and we knew we needed to push the tempo to win. It was great to get our record 21st win in front of a great crowd on Senior Day."

Turning Point

Leading by nine, 47-38, with 8:57 to play, Kori Bayne-Walker found Snow underneath the basket to put Stony Brook in front, 49-38. Ogunnorin followed with a layup at 8:08, but Tierra Shumpert to cut the Seawolves' lead to 11, 51-40, on a jumper with 7:41 left. Alyssa Coiro got the ball into the hot hands of Ogunnorin, who put in a jump shot that gave SB a 53-40 advantage at the 7:21 mark.

Goodman widened the margin to 15 when she came away with a steal and went coast-to-coast for a layup, and Snow converted a three-point play at 5:23 that put the Seawolves up, 58-40, their largest lead of the game.

Vermont stormed back with 10 unanswered points to pull to within eight, 58-50, with 2:08 remaining. However, Stony Brook went 6-for-7 from the free throw line in the waning minutes and Jenkins put an exclamation point on the historic win with a layup with four ticks left.
