    Women’s Basketball

    The women’s basketball team used a 16-4 run to close the first half at a 28-28 tie, and played solidly in the second half to pick up its first America East Victory of the season Tuesday afternoon at Albany.

    The 64-56 victory at SEFCU Arena pushed the Seawolves’ record on the season to 3-15. The loss knocked Albany to 3-16, and 1-5 in America East play.

    Sophomore guard Misha Horsey shot 7-10 from the field and scored a team leading 17 points. She also added seven rebounds, two assists, and two steals in her team leading 37 minutes of play.

    The two halves of the gamed provided a marked difference for the Seawolves.

    They shot only 36.4 percent in the first 20 minutes, and got to the free throw line only three times, making two.

    In the second half, the Seawolves shot 60 percent, making 14 of 23 shots from the field, and hitting seven of 10 free throws.

    The defense also stepped up as the game went on.

    In the first half, Albany shot 42.3 percent, but the Seawolves held Albany to just 29.6 percent shooting in the second half.

    The Seawolves were able to hold Albany’s Britney McGee, the teams third leading scorer and leading three-point shooter to only six points in 34 minutes. McGee went 0-9 from the field, including 0-7 from beyond the arc. She was able to make all six of her free throw attempts.

    The Stony Brook bench also contributed heavily, outscoring Albany’s reserves by a 25-14 margin.

    The Seawolves never trailed after being behind 32-30 following two McGee free throws with 18:16 remaining in the second half.

    The women get back on the court Saturday afternoon at 4:00 p.m., part of a doubleheader with the men’s team as part of the “Celebration of Stony Brook Men’s and Women’s Basketball.”

    After the women’s game and before the men’s, the Department of Athletics will hold a reception for all basketball alumni.
