Men’s Basketball Goes 1-1 in Thrilling Week

Down three points with just two seconds remaining, Sophomore guard Chris Martin’s three-pointer would not fall, and the Seawolves suffered another tough home loss.

1,100 people crammed into Pritchard Gym to see the Seawolves fall 56-53 to American.

Tommy Brenton led the way with 13 points and 11 rebounds in 26 minutes, but it was Chris Martin, who scored 10 points, who took the deciding shot.

Martin, who subbed into the game for Marques Cox on the final possession, shot 4-8 from the floor and 2-5 from the free throw line.

Cox, the teams designated defensive stopper, played 31 minutes and had 3 assists, 2 rebounds, and 1 steal while not taking a shot.

The last lead the Seawolves held was 17-16 at the 9:40 mark.

“We played some excellent basketball against a terrific American team,” Head Coach Steve Pikiell said after the game. “And unfortunately they just made a few more plays than we did down the stretch.”

Seawolves Defeat Columbia 62-60 On The Road

After the Seawolves took a few days off for Thanksgiving break, they traveled to Levien Gymnasium to take on the Columbia Lions on Saturday afternoon.

Like the game before against American, the Seawolves found itself locked in a tight battle throughout.

Stony Brook, which faced it’s biggest deficit of the game when it went down 22-17 with 5:06 remaining in the first half, then rallied to take its largest lead at 45-32.

But the Lions came roaring back to tie the game at 60 with just 1:17 remaining. Chris Martins lay-up with 35 seconds remaining stood the rest of the way despite numerous three point shot attempts by the Lions in an effort to win in regulation time.
