Senior Sabre Proctor dominated the court, scoring 17 points.

Both teams also sported pink headbands, shoes and other apparel in honor of Play 4Kay. Pkay 4Kay is a cancer fund in partnership with the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association committed to finding an answer in the fight against women’s cancer.  The scoreboards and screens around the court were also covered in pink for the night, as well as the Stony Brook Dance Team’s pom poms.

Despite all the promotions the stands were not very packed.

Sarah Heacox, a freshman biomedical engineering major, attended the game with her two friends. She said that she was having fun but it is a shame that there were not that many people there.

The crowd was still loud and energetic, even though there was not much of them. The Stony Brook Marching Band played in the stands and Wolfie  kept the crowd warmed up.

The game ended a little before 9 p.m., and after the team was done signing shirts and posters for the fans, some players spoke a little about how they played.

“Our goal going in was to out rebound them and to make more free throws than them,” Alyssa Coiro, a junior political science and history major said.

Aaliyah Worley, a freshman undeclared major, said that they also wanted to make sure that they moved the ball around the court and that it was successful during the  game.

The next home game for the Seawolves will be Feb. 18 vs. UMass Lowell.
