- After a 34-34 stalemate through the first 27 minutes of the game, the Knights went on a 20-8 run to take a 54-42 lead with two minutes remaining in the contest. Stony Brook never backed down as Proctor and senior Dani Klupenger (Aurora, Ore.) knocked down back-to-back three's to help cut the deficit to five with 49 ticks left on the clock.
