Last Time Out
Junior forward Sabre Proctor reached double figures for the 13th consecutive time with a game-high 20 points as the Stony Brook women's basketball team trumped America East's newest member, UMass Lowell, 86-63, Saturday, Jan. 18 at Pritchard Gymnasium. Senior guard Teasha Harris matched a personal-best 17 points, and sophomores Brittany Snow and Miranda Jenkins added 10 points apiece. The 86 points the Seawolves scored were a season high, and the nine triples they hit were the most for the program since Nov. 8, 2010 (9 vs. Hofstra). Stony Brook gained control of the game with an early 14-0 run to go in front, 24-14, when Proctor converted a three-point play at 11:37. The Seawolves led, 51-31, at the half and took their largest lead of the game, 82-50, on a layup by Kori Bayne-Walker with 5:54 left in the game.
