A day after Stony Brook won its third straight game to improve to 7-2 for the first time in the program's Division I history, four other America East men's hoops teams take the court, including three coming off wins.
On Tuesday, the Seawolves (8-2) ended the first half on a 24-7 run en route to a 77-61 win at St. Francis Brooklyn. Dave Coley scored a season-high 19 points while Tommy Brenton pulled down seven rebounds to become Stony Brook's all-time leading rebounder with 910.
Also Tuesday, Boston U. (3-6) had its three-game win streak snapped at three on a last-second jumper by Harvard, which beat the Terriers, 65-64 and Binghamton fell at third-ranked Michigan, 67-39. D.J. Irving scored a game-high 24 points and Dom Morris had his second double-double (15 points, 12 rebounds) of the year for the Terriers. The 67 points by the Wolverines tied their season low. Jordan Reed led Binghamton with 11 points and eight rebounds.
On Wednesday, Albany, Hartford, UMBC and Vermont are in action with the Great Danes, Retrievers and Catamounts playing at home. All four games tip at 7 p.m.
The Great Danes (8-2) go for their sixth straight win when they face South Carolina St The Albany trounced the Bulldogs, 83-55, earlier this season on Nov. 20. The Great Danes, who are off to their best-ever 10-game start in Division I, have not won six straight since 2007.
The Hawks (5-4) go for their fifth win in six games when it visits Niagara Wednesday. Hartford’s 5-4 start is its best through nine games since the 2006-07 season. Its five non-league wins are its most since the 07-08 campaign.
The Retrievers (2-8) will try to snap a three-game losing skid when Coppin State comes to the RAC. Ryan Cook will lead the way for UMBC. He leads America East averaging 17.9 points per game.
The Catamounts (5-3) host Dartmouth and are going for their second straight win. UVM is coming off a win at Quinnipiac Saturday.
