    Women’s Basketball Ends Road Trip On Low Note

    On Friday Dec. 7, Stony Brook’s Women’s Basketball team traveled to Yale to play their final game of their four-game road trip. Unfortunately, they fell to the Bulldogs by a score of 81-64, their third loss in the last four games.

    In the first half Stony Brook held the lead for the first five minutes, before Yale grabbed the advantage with 14:11 left, to bring the score to 8-6. From then on, Yale held the lead for the rest of the game.

    In the first half, Stony Brook’s downfall was their foul troubles and poor shooting. Stony Brook accumulated 16 personal fouls, which led to the Bulldogs shooting 19 free throws (13-19). The Seawolves took 8 more shots than the Bulldogs, but knocked down the same amount. Stony Brook shot only 36% opposed to Yale’s 46%.

    In the second half, Stony Brook had 13 turnovers, and consequently the Bulldogs took six more shots than the Seawolves. With a combination of extra shots, and their impressive shooting performance, the Bulldogs proved to be too much for the Seawolves.

    Some notable Stony Brook players were Dana Ferraro who had 10 points and 6 assists, Jodie Plikus who also tallied 10 points, and Aly Young who had a game high 11 points. From Yale’s side, Melissa Colborne had 27 points and 8 rebounds in only 29 minutes, and Stephanie Marciano had 6 points and 10 assists.

    The Seawolves broke their two game win streak against Yale, with their most recent victory a 71-57 win on Jan. 18, 2000. Yale takes home their first win of the season, and looks to build on the win against Hofstra on Tuesday. Stony Brook’s (3-5) next game is Wednesday, Dec. 12, where they will host the Central Connecticut State Lady Blue Devils (0-8).
