Dec. 8, 2013
Easton, Pa. - Sabre Proctor put on a scoring clinic once again, recording 21 points to lift the Stony Brook women's basketball team to a 71-61 win over Lafayette Sunday afternoon at the Kirby Sports Center.
Not to be outdone, Chikilra Goodman continued to stuff the stat sheet for Stony Brook (6-3), tallying her first double-double of the year on 11 points and 11 rebounds in addition to four steals, three assists and one block. Freshman Kori Bayne-Walker notched a career-high 13 points on an efficient 71.4 percent shooting (5-for-7), while Jessica Ogonnorin tallied 11 points to round out a balanced Seawolves attack that saw four players reach double figures in scoring for the second straight contest.
Danielle Fiacco recorded a team-best 19 points for Lafeyette (6-3).
Head Coach Beth O'Boyle Reaction
"We're really proud to get a road win against a good team like Lafayette. I think our team really battled in the post and got out in transition."
Stony Brook used a 26-9 run to rally from a 10-point deficit early in the first half and go ahead by seven, 32-25, when Ogunnorin drained a jumper with 5:21 on the clock. The hosts went on a 10-5 spurt thereafter to pull to within two, 37-35, at the break.
The second half remained close in the early going but the Seawolves never trailed, going ahead by five, 52-47, on a Bayne-Walker jumper with 12:03 to play. Goodman got the ball right back for Stony Brook, swooping in to pick off Emily Homan's pass and racing down the court for a layup and a 54-47 advantage. After the Leopards called for time, SB made a defensive stop and Goodman found Proctor behind the arc for a triple to give the Seawolves their largest lead of the game, 57-47, at the 11:24 mark.
The Leopards hung around, getting to within four, 65-61, with 1:03 left. They had a chance to get closer when Jamie O'Hare forced a Goodman turnover and went inside for a layup that did not fall. Brittany Snow fought for the rebound, and the Seawolves made their free throws down the stretch to come away with the win.
