Stony Brook Women’s Basketball Team Wins.

The Stony Brook women’s basketball team won last night’s game against UMBC by a whopping score of 74-41.

The Seawolves are on a three-game winning streak and have won five of their last six games.

Stony Brook senior Sabre Proctor scored 17 points and 11 rebounds. Sophomore Christa Scognamiglio and senior Jessica Ogunorrin both scored 13 points.

UMBC started off the game with a 3-0 lead. But moments later, Stony Brook took the lead and never came back.

Before the game, the first 250 attendees were treated to free Jamba Juice and Energy fitness cinch bags that included free two-week passes to the gym.

During the game, contest winners were announced during a few short segments. Prizes included gift cards and free tickets to future games.

Seawolf fans were there cheering on their team. “I think it’s hysterical that the UMBC coach already got T’d up in the first half,” said Lindsay Pike, 20, a junior health science major.

“T’d” up is a term used in basketball when a team receives a technical foul.

Pike said she comes to the women’s basketball games because she is a true Seawolf.

Between the 6:49 mark and half-time, the Seawolves scored 10 points and went ahead, 23-9, after Miranda Jenkins hit a pair of free throws.

At half-time, the SBU dance team had a moment to show off their moves to the new hit pop song “Sugar” by Maroon 5.

The crowd was roaring and stopping, chanting throughout the game. “Defense, Defense, Defense,” echoed throughout the arena. “Go, Fight, Win,” the crowd chanted.

Every time a player got a free throw, the crowd lifted up its arms and hollered “whoosh” in encouragement — the sound a basketball makes when it goes through the hoop.

With five minutes left on the clock, UMBC starting to pick up the heat, scoring 10 points within three minutes, but it wasn’t enough to catch up to the Seawolves.

With one minute left, UMBC still tried their best to catch up until the buzzer rang.

The Seawolves won 74-41.

This is now the fifth time in a row that the Seawolves have defeated the Retrievers.

After the game, the Seawolves met with fans in the main lobby.

The girls sported pink in honor of Play4Kay, an effort that supports the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, in partnership with the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association  and the V Foundation, in the fight against women’s cancers.

I took the opportunity to ask point guard Miranda Jenkins, power forward Sabre Proctor and power forward Brittany Snow how they felt about their five-time victory against UMBC.

“They’re a great team. I remember playing them freshman year and we just had to keep fighting and keep fighting because they always bring it,” said junior Brittany Snow.
