SBU Women’s Basketball Looks to Finish its Season Strong

When Head Coach Caroline McCombs and her women’s basketball team takes the floor on Wednesday, Feb. 18, against the UMass-Lowell Riverhawks, it will be more than just a basketball game.

The Seawolves will have one of their last chances to not only prepare for the all-important America East Conference tournament, but to show what they are made of in front of a raucous home crowd at the new Island Federal Credit Union Arena.

Stony Brook has only lost at home three times all season long, and look to continue that success as the year draws to a close.

The arena is the newest addition to the Stony Brook Athletics family. It is located at the corner of the academic mall, within the Indoor Sports Complex, which is adjacent to the newly-named Walter J. Hawrys Campus Recreation Center, Stony Brook’s gym.

Stony Brook Orthopedic will be giving out free rally towels to fans in attendance.

It will also be Asian Culture Night, as senior forward Sabre Proctor and company look to take down UMass-Lowell, a team that the Seawolves beat earlier in the season by just four points.

Stony Brook will also be hosting You Can Play Night , which is an initiative to make sports a place where anybody, regardless of sexual orientation or any other beliefs, could play.

The Seawolves have done a lot with this project, including making a video to show its main tenets.

This would be a good event for a mobile journalist to cover for both timeliness and venue. People are still trying to get their first look at Stony Brook’s new arena.

Seawolves fans who cannot make the game would also enjoy updates on their favorite team, as they play one of the most important games of the year.

A mobile reporter can be the first to break the score to Stony Brook’s fan base, bringing the news of momentum swings and individual player performance, along with providing updates on other festivities that may take place throughout the night.

There is no better place for the Stony Brook faithful to check in on the game if they are not there themselves than online, as they can find the most important information about what is taking place, instantly.

National media will also be at the game, as ESPN 3 will be broadcasting the contest live on the internet for everybody to see.
