NJIT 64, Stony Brook 61: Damon Lynn Just Keeps Scoring

Roland Nyama, perhaps Stony Brook’s best defender, walked through the bowels of Island Federal Credit Union Arena after Wednesday night’s game where he ran into NJIT’s Damon Lynn. Nyama had spent the better part of 40 minutes trying to chase Lynn all over the court earlier, but could do nothing but flash a big smile afterward while shaking Lynn’s hand.

“They told me to chase you off the three-point line, but man, you’re tough,” Nyama said.

Nyama actually did a good job keeping Lynn from hurting Stony Brook from outside the arc Wednesday, as he hit just a pair three-pointers (both in a 90-second span late in the first half) in 11 attempts. But by night’s end, the final stats showed Lynn with 26 hard-earned points, and NJIT with its seventh win of the season, 64-61.

UMBC Scores 120 Points, Defeats Citadel In Double-Overtime

By Corey Johns, So Much Sports Baltimore — Coming off perhaps the most physically grueling game of their season just two days prior (Towson), UMBC put together a masterful performance against the excessively fast-paced Citadel Bulldogs to earn a record-breaking 120-111 victory in double-overtime.

Three Thoughts About Albany and Siena After the Albany Cup

Albany defeated Siena 81-72 at SEFCU Arena on Sunday night, taking back the Albany Cup. The Saints fell behind by 18 at halftime, and then mounted a furious second half scoring assault that fell just a bit short. Foul trouble and defense bedeviled Siena, while Albany improved to 4-2 behind David Nichols’ 29 points and Joe Cremo’s 20. Continue reading

UMBC Moves To 4-0 With Victory Over Kennesaw State

By Corey Johns, So Much Sports Baltimore

Who would have thought a year ago anybody would be talking about a 4-0 UMBC season in 2016? Especially considering Kennesaw State had a player score 31 points (Kendrick Ray) and another post a 14-point, 15-rebound double-double (Aubrey Williams) and as a team shot 48.4% from the floor, it seemed unlikely they would be headed there either. But the Retrievers were unstoppable offensively themselves and beat the Owls 93-85 to stay unbeaten to start the season. Continue reading

Vermont Might Be One Of Those Mid-Majors Again

Had its 15-point second half lead in the America East final last March held, you might have noticed that Vermont was playing its best basketball of the season. Heading into that fateful day in Stony Brook, the Catamounts had won seven straight and had scored at least 1 point per possession in 10 consecutive outings.

It didn’t, of course.

But while the focus – rightfully so given their history – was squarely on the Seawolves on that Saturday morning eight months ago, Vermont’s impressive performance, and the fact that they were there in the firstplace, were no fluke. And it also highlights just how amazing Jameel Warney’s 43-point effort in the Stony Brook comeback was that day.
