SBU Sports: Women’s hoop defeats New Hampshire 71-53

The Stony Brook University women’s basketball team (13-2, 4-1 America East) came out strong to earn a win over New Hampshire (3-12, 0-4 America East), 71 -53, on January 16 at Lundholm Gymnasium in Durham.

With the victory, Stony Brook extended his winning streak to four straight games and won six of his last seven games. The Seawolves were paced by four student-athletes who scored in double figures to lead the team to its league-leading 13th win of the season.

The Seawolves’ scoring was led by graduate forward Leighah-Amori Wool and senior guard Anastasia Warren, both finishing with 12 points. Wool and Warren were joined by junior guard Gigi Gonzalez and graduate forward India Pagan each with 10 points apiece.

Stony Brook took a 29-22 halftime lead after Pagan made a layup to regain the lead with 6:27 left in the second quarter. The Seawolves did not let go as they held the advantage for the game recall.

Wool had his 500th career rebound with 7:51 left in the third quarter, which led to a pass to Pagan who converted a layup to help extend Stony Brook’s lead. The Seawolves lead swelled to 20 points with 25 seconds left.

With the win, Stony Brook improved to 13-2 overall and 4-1 in the America East game.

“I’m happy to have a voiceover on the road. I thought New Hampshire was playing really hard. It’s not easy to get conference wins, especially on an opponent’s home court,” Stony Brook head coach Ashley Langford said after the game.

The team returned home to the Island Federal Arena to take on New York foes Binghamton on January 19. Results were not available at the time of going to press.
