    Men’s Basketball Opens Season With 0-4 Start

    Seawolves Fall to Maryland-Eastern Shore 53-52

    The visiting Stony Brook’s Men’s Basketball team lost to Maryland-Eastern Shore on Thursday in another heart-breaking loss. After falling in overtime last week to Lafayette, the Seawolves fell with just six seconds left. Denzel Jackson’s late free throw gave the Hawks a one point edge in a 53-52 win.

    Stony Brook had a 24-21 lead going into half-time, and were up 38-31 after a jumper by Michell Beauford with 10:06 left in the contest.

    The Hawks would take a 51-50 lead with just :45 left, after a three pointer by Ed Tyson and free throws by Denzel Jackson and Josh Bright. The Seawolves worked it inside for a lay-up by Red Shirt Junior Nick Carter with just :18 left for a one point lead. The Hawks would get to the line on the next possession where Ed Tyson would hit one of two free throws to tie the game. Jackson would then steal the Seawolves inbounds and get to the line for his game winning free throw.

    Junior Michael Tyree would come off the bench for a team high 13 points, shooting 5-9 from the field. Demetrius Young (9 boards) and Emanual Neto (10 rebounds) gave solid rebounding off the bench, as the Seawolves had a slight edge in rebounds 36-34.

    Seawolves Drop Fourth in a Row to American

    On Sunday, Nov. 18 Men’s Basketball fell to American and to 0-4 on the Season. Ricky Lucas led all scorers with 17 points (5-10 from the field), but the Seawolves hit only 34% of their shots. The 64-56 loss was the Seawolves third road loss of the season.

    #22 Jermol Paul hit double figures with 14 points and one steal, but his efforts were outmatched by American’s more balanced scoring effort. The Eagles had four players with over nine points.

    With the game tied at 42-42 early in the second half, the AU Eagles would put together an 11-2 run that Stony Brook couldn’t overcome. Ricky Lucas’ lay-up at 1:27 would bring the Seawolves with in one at 56-57, but the Eagles would pull away with a decisive 7-0 run.

    The Seawolves host Columbia on Saturday Nov. 24 before their matchup against basketball powerhouse Kentucky on Nov. 27.
