Stony Brook, N.Y. -Senior guard Chikilra Goodman continued her hot start, going off for a game- and career-high 24 points to go along with seven rebounds and four steals, but the Stony Brook women's basketball team came up short against Army, 75-67, Friday afternoon at Pritchard Gymnasium.

Head Coach Beth O'Boyle's Reaction

"Overall, I thought it was a good game. It came down to a few possessions where we didn't make stops and they executed. I'm proud of the way we played and hope it helps prepare us for when we face good teams in the America East."

Turning Point

The Seawolves trailed, 5-0, early in the game but stormed back to take an 8-7 advantage on a Goodman layup at 14:14 and were up, 31-25, at the break.

Army opened the second half on a 15-9 run and evened the score at 40-all on a pair of free throws by Olivia Schretzman at 13:07, but Stony Brook staked a four-point advantage, 48-44, after a layup by Ogunnorin and two free throws by Miranda Jenkins at the 9:21 mark. However, the Black Knights used a 9-0 run thereafter to reclaim the lead for the first time since the opening minutes, 53-48, with just over seven minutes remaining.

The Seawolves continued to fight, twice trimming the deficit to two and finding themselves within three, 60-57, when Goodman drained a trey at 2:22, but a lapse on defense led to a Schretzman layup-and-one less than a minute later as Army went up by six, 63-57.
