Final Stats

Youngstown, Ohio -  Youngstown State hit 13 three-pointers and held the Stony Brook women's basketball team to 28% shooting in a 76-43 victory over the Seawolves on Friday night in Youngstown, Ohio. Senior Jessica Previlon (Brooklyn, N.Y.) led the Seawolves with 13 points and six rebounds.

Coach's Reaction

"Youngstown State did a very good job of scoring from the outside tonight. We defended well in spurts but unfortunately a few costly turnovers allowed them to go on a run. Our team effort on the road this week has been good, but we will continue to work on getting better with our execution on both sides of the floor."

--Head Coach Beth O'Boyle
