Hot start, balanced scoring key #Seawolves' rout of St. Peter's, 77-47
Dec. 4, 2013
Jersey City, N.J. - Junior forward Sabre Proctor led four Seawolves in double-figures in scoring and notched her first double-double of the year on 20 points and 10 rebounds as the Stony Brook women's basketball team raced past St. Peter's, 77-47, Wednesday night at the Yanitelli Center. Chikilra Goodman continued to play stellar, all-around basketball in her senior season, scoring 11 points to go along with six boards, six assists and three steals.
Stony Brook (5-3) received solid play from a pair of sophomores, with forward Brittany Snow putting in 13 points and matching a career-high three helpers and Kim Hanlon tying a personal-best 11 points. Junior Jessica Ogunnorin tallied seven points, all in the second half.
The win marked the first time the Seawolves have beaten an opponent by 30 or more points since they downed St. Francis (N.Y.), 71-40, Dec. 6, 2009.
Aziza May had 13 points for St. Peter's (0-6).
Head Coach Beth O'Boyle's Reaction
"Our game plan coming in was to control the tempo, and I think our team did a really good job of that. It was exciting to see Kim Hanlon play such a good game."
The Seawolves broke their habit of getting off to slow starts, taking a commanding 25-8 lead when Proctor drove inside for a bucket that gave her 17 points with 10:05 to play in the opening half.
St. Peter's rallied, trimming the deficit to 10, 33-23, on a Hala Mofstra 3-pointer. Ogunnorin was whistled for a foul underneath the basket after the shot went in, and Kaydine Bent sank both her free throws to pull the Peacocks within eight, 33-25, at 2:05.
After Miranda Jenkins was fouled and went 1-for-2 from the line on the other end, Proctor caught an errant pass by Mofstra and found Teasha Harris in the paint. The double teamed senior guard faked once and put the ball in off the glass as Stony Brook went back up by double-digits, 36-25, with 1:36 until the break. Snow and Proctor each hit a pair of free throws in the final 30 seconds of the half to cap off an 8-0 run that sent SB to the locker room with a 41-25 advantage.
