Stony Brook picked up their first victory in the NIT Season Tip-Off, beating Western Kentucky 71-61 in front of 2,522 at Island Federal Credit Union Arena on Tuesday night. Junior Jameel Warney led the way with a characteristic double-double of 17 points and 15 rebounds, while his classmate Carson Puriefoy carried the team late with a […]
While we’ve given our thoughts on both sides, the heroic Dion Nesmith and Hofstra as the graduate student nailed a jumper to give the Pride a victory over Stony Brook, here are photos from Friday night’s thrilling start to a renewed Long Island rivalry.
Happy in eating my words on a prediction, a renewed rivalry began on Long Island Friday as Hofstra pulled out a 66-65 victory over Stony Brook thanks to Dion Nesmith’s heroics. His contested jumper, made with 1.9 seconds left, lifted the Pride over the Seawolves in their first meeting since 2008. Here are four thoughts, from the Stony Brook side, […]
The America East picked up a grand total of three wins over the season’s first four days. However, that doesn’t mean there haven’t been positive signs from some of the league’s best teams.

Most coaches won’t hesitate to tell you how difficult it is to win a basketball game at the Division I level. No matter how easy it may appear, success is never taken for granted for those who have been part of the coaching grind.
Stony Brook has been on the brink of an NCAA tournament appearance for so many seasons. Last season, the Seawolves were minutes away. All they has to do was hold onto a lead against Albany. But SBU saw the game slip away as Peter Hooley drained a three-pointer to clinch the NCAA tournament berth.
Most of the time freshman Deshaun Thrower has been thrown out on the floor against junior Carson Puriefoy in practice. The two have been running the white and red teams, respectively, as Stony Brook head coach Steve Pikiell wants to acclimate Michigan’s Mr. Basketball into the point guard role.
