Last Time Out
Stony Brook (14-5, 5-1 America East) held Vermont to without a field goal in the final 13:37 of play and placed four Seawolves in double figures in an 83-49 road win Thursday night on ESPN3. With the victory, the Seawolves matched their 2012-13 win total and best start to conference action since 2006-07. Sophomore forward Brittany Snow led the balanced attack with a game-high 17 points, and senior guard Chikilra Goodman added 15 points. Junior forward Sabre Proctor and sophomore guard Miranda Jenkins each tallied 10 points. Proctor contributed in multiple ways, chipping in six boards, a personal-best four helpers and a game-high three steals. Stony Brook outrebounded Vermont, 40-22, with Snow and Goodman leading the contest with seven boards apiece. Vermont was within nine, 49-40, when Kylie Butler nailed a jumper. Stony Brook utterly dominated thereafter, closing the game on an incredible 34-9 run.
