Wildcats Edge Women’s Hoops

Despite a season-high 23 points from junior guard Misha Horsey (Wynconte, PA.), the Seawolves dropped a close decision in New Hampshire Wednesday night, falling 76-71 to the Wildcats.

A tight first half led to a 40-38 Widcats edge going into the halftime break. The Seawolves managed to overcome junior forward Kirsten Jeter’s (Elmont, NY.) 3 first-half fouls and turned New Hampshire turnovers into points.

Stony Brook even put together a quick 10-3 run to go ahead 34-32 with a little over 3 minutes remaining in the first period. But the Wildcats battled back, using hot 3-point shooting to regain the lead and take a 40-38 lead into the second half.

But the Seawolves come out scorching after the break. The road team mustered another scoring run, running off 9 straight points to take its largest lead at 50-43.

With roughly 12 minutes to go, Jeter picked up her fourth foul and was forced to sit, and the Wildcats took advantage. New Hampshire embarked on a 16-5 run over the next four minutes, eventually regaining the lead and control of the game.

The Seawolves battled to stay within striking distance, but the lead swelled to 9 with 3 and a half minutes to go. Stony Brook managed to trim it to 5 on a Horsey layup shortly after, but that’s as close as the road team got, dropping their sixth conference game and 16th overall.

The Seawolves will try to right the ship on Saturday afternoon, when they host the Binghamton Bearcats at 2:00 p.m.
