Fresh off improving to 4-1 for just the second time in program history, Stony Brook will turn around and play again just 24 hours later as it faces #21/23 Connecticut in one of two games today. The Seawolves were one of three America East teams to post wins Saturday.
Stony Brook (4-1) outrebounded Canisius, 47-32, en route to a 82-75 win over the Golden Griffins,
their first loss of the year. Anthony Jackson scored a career-best 21
