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 points to lead the effort. The Seawolves will play back-to-back days for the first time since 2001 when they visit the nationally-ranked Huskies today for a 4 p.m. contest. The game will be televised on SNY and ESPN3.

Also on Sunday, Maine (0-4) goes for its first win of the season when it hosts Siena at Alfond Arena for a 2 p.m. contest.

In addition to Stony Brook winning Saturday, Binghamton and Hartford picked up victories.

The Bearcats (2-3) defeated Marywood, 76-51, behind Jordan Reed's double-double of 21 pionts and 11 rebounds. The Bearcats, who also beat St. Peter’s on Nov. 18, have won consecutive games for the first time since Jan. 8 and 10, 2011 and have also matched last year’s win total in just five games.

Hartford (2-3) snapped a six-game losing skid against Central Connecticut State with an 80-77 win. The Hawks shot a blistering 55 percent from the field and scored their most points since Jan. 3, 2011. Mark Nwakamma led the way with a career-high 24 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

Boston U. (0-5) and New Hampshire (2-3) dropped decisions Saturday. The Terriers fell at George Mason, 48-45, despite Dom Morris' third career double-double and the Wildcats dropped a 60-50 decision at Holy Cross.
