Snow, Goodman light up the scoreboard as #Seawolves top Bradley, 83-79
Nov. 16, 2013
Peoria, Ill. - Sophomore forward Brittany Snow and senior guard Chikilra Goodman turned in arguably the finest performances of their two-year careers on the Stony Brook women's basketball team as the #Seawolves battled back from a slow start for an 83-79 road win at Bradley Friday night at Carver Arena.
Snow tallied personal-bests in points and rebounds with 30 and nine, respectively, while Goodman had a career-high 22 points to go along with four assists and three steals. Snow became the first Seawolf to record 30 points in a single game since Mykeema Ford put in 32 against Boston University Jan. 10, 2007.
Junior Jessica Ogunnorin recorded nine points and eight rebounds in her debut, while freshman Kori Bayne-Walker and redshirt sophomore Miranda Jenkins chimed in with seven points apiece for Stony Brook (2-1).
Michelle Young led Bradley (2-1), a team that received votes in the most recent CollegeInsider.com Mid Major poll, with 26 points.
Head Coach Beth O'Boyle's Reaction
"Tonight was an excellent team effort across the board, and I thought we got some key defensive stops. Getting a win like this on the road is a valuable experience for our young team."
Bradley raced out to a 13-0 advantage, but Stony Brook used scrappy defense and the hot hands of Goodman and Snow to climb back into the game. The Seawolves briefly took a one-point lead, 36-35, on a free throw by Goodman with 49 ticks left in the first half; however, Kelsey Budd knocked down two shots from the charity stripe in the final seconds to send Bradley into the locker room up by just one, 37-36.
Stony Brook led most of the way in the second half and took its largest lead of the game, 74-59, when Ogunnorin nailed a jumper at 5:10. The home team put together a furious rally in the moments that followed, closing the gap to six, 76-70, when Kelly Frings went 1-for-2 from the line with two minutes left.
With 1:14 to play, Goodman tipped Budd's pass, controlled the ball and raced down the court to go up for a layup when she was fouled. The senior guard hit both of her free throws to put the Seawolves back up by eight, 78-70, with 1:11 left. BU got as close as four in the closing minute, but Stony Brook made its free throws and maintained the lead.
