Stony Brook 76, UAlbany 69
In a very physical, very entertaining game, the Seawolves showed why they are in first place in the America East Conference, taking down the University at Albany 76-69, on Saturday evening, at a soldout SEFCU Arena.
Stony Brook (10-1, 15-7) overcame a three-point halftime deficit, getting a team-high 17 points from sophomore guard Dave Coley.
The Great Danes (7-4, 15-10) still haven't beaten one of the top three teams in the league, losing for the fourth time to Stony Brook, Vermont and Boston University, which they host Monday at SEFCU Arena.
UAlbany drops to 10-5 all-time in Big Purple Growl games.
The Great Danes women's team won the first game of the doubleheader, taking down Stony Brook 57-47, to improve to 9-2 in league play.
