Iowa City, Iowa - Sophomore Brittany Snow led the Stony Brook women's basketball team in scoring for the second consecutive game with 15 points to go along with six rebounds, but the #Seawolves fell to Iowa, 78-40, Sunday afternoon at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Junior Jessica Ogunnorin pitched in seven points and eight rebounds in her second appearance for Stony Brook (2-2).

Ally Disterhoft recorded a game-high 17 points to lead three players in double-figures for Iowa (4-0).

Head Coach Beth O'Boyle's Reaction

"We did some good things in the first half, but their athleticism was too much for us when they started hitting shots."

Turning Point

The Seawolves kept pace with the Big Ten Hawkeyes early on, getting on the board first when Chikilra Goodman put in a layup at 18:47. Bethany Dolittle responded with a bucket, but Teasha Harris went 1-for-2 from the line to put Stony Brook in front by one, 3-2, less than three minutes into the contest.

Iowa could not hit either of its two shots on the other end, and Harris came away with a rebound on a 3-point attempt by Melissa Dixon. The Seawolves got the ball into the hands of Snow, whose shot was blocked by Kali Peschel. Harris grabbed another board and found Ogunnorin on the perimeter. The junior guard stepped back and nailed a triple, giving the Seawolves a 6-2 advantage with 16:40 left in the first half.

Iowa took control over the next five minutes, capping a 14-0 run on a layup by Alexa Kastanek at 11:52. Stony Brook continued to compete, with Snow and Ogunnorin particularly impressing against the formidable Iowa squad. However, the Big Ten Hawkeyes widened the gap towards the end of the first half and continued on for the win.
