Fort Collins, Colo. – The Stony Brook women’s basketball team will make its second Division I postseason appearance when it plays at Michigan Friday in the first round of the WNIT. The time is TBA.

Stony Brook (24-8, 13-3 America East) automatically qualified for the WNIT as the best remaining team in the America East based on regular-season standings. SBU finished second, and first-place Albany qualified for the NCAA Tournament.

The Seawolves’ 24 wins are a Division I record and are tied for the most in program history with the Division III 1986-87 team. They beat UMBC and New Hampshire to clinch their second-ever berth in the America East finals, where they came up short against the top-seeded Great Danes.

Stony Brook boasts four All-America East honorees, including Defensive Player of the Year and first-team all-conference pick Chikilra Goodman. Goodman ranks first in the league and 31st nationally in steals per game (2.6) and leads the team with seven double-doubles.

Junior forward Sabre Proctor joined Goodman on the first team. Proctor is third in the America East in scoring at 14.4 points per game and has posted 26 double-digit scoring efforts.

Freshman guard Kori Bayne-Walker placed on the All-Rookie Team, while sophomore forward Brittany Snow was named All-Academic to round out Stony Brook’s all-conference selections.


 

 

Michigan (18-13, 8-8 Big Ten) is playing in its fifth consecutive national postseason tournament. Shannon Smith paces the team in points at 14.1 per game.
