Jan. 4, 2013
Durham, N.H. - The Stony Brook women's basketball team will look for its first America East win of the season on Saturday when it travels to New Hampshire for a 4 p.m. matchup against the Wildcats.
Last Time Out
The Seawolves (8-6, 0-1 AE) fell to Boston University on Wednesday in the conference opener by a score of 72-61. Stony Brook outscored the Terriers in the second half and shot 49%, but could not overcome its foul shooting (7-for-22) and a 23-point effort from BU's Chantell Alford. Sophomore Sabre Proctor (Harrisburg, Pa.) scored 12 points and senior Jessica Previlon (Brooklyn, N.Y.) added 12 points and nine rebounds for the Seawolves.
The Wildcats (5-8, 0-1 AE) will also be looking for their first conference victory on Saturday after falling in overtime to Vermont on Wednesday, 63-60. Cari Reed scored 20 points and pulled down 10 rebounds to pace UNH. For the season, Reed is averaging 13.1 points and 7.3 rebounds per game. Morgan Frame also averages double-figure scoring with 10.3 points and 6.5 boards per contest.
Stony Brook and New Hampshire have met 25 times in the past and the Wildcats own a 16-9 edge in the series. New Hampshire has won the last five meetings and has not lost at home to Stony Brook since Jan. 13, 2007, an 85-66 decision.
Senior Dani Klupenger (Aurora, Ore.) needs just 14 three-pointers to become the fifth Seawolf to make 100 or more 3's in their career. Klupenger is shooting 35% from beyond the arc this year, converting 17-of-48 shots from three-point territory. The senior has just one basket inside the arc this season.
Harris Stays Hot
Junior Teasha Harris (Bloomington, Ill.) scored 10 points against BU on Wednesday to reach double-figure scoring for the fourth straight game. Over that span, Harris is averaging 13.3 points per game, compared to just 2.8 points per game before that stretch. Harris is the only Seawolf this season to score 10+ points in four straight games.
Sophomore Sabre Proctor has come off the bench in 10 of 14 games this season, but that hasn't stopped Proctor from leading the team in scoring on five occasions. In addition, Proctor has topped 10 points in seven games, including a 25-point outburst against Iona on Dec. 30.
