Head Coach Beth O’Boyle’s Reaction
“It was nice to see our team put in a full 40 minutes today and play two complete halves. We got great bench production, and it was nice to see Teasha have such a big game.”
UMass Lowell grabbed an early 14-10 lead on a layup by Lindsey Doucette with 14:15 on the clock. Stony Brook began to click on both ends of the floor thereafter, forcing four UMass Lowell turnovers and scoring 14 unanswered points over the next two minutes to go ahead, 24-14, when Proctor converted at three-point play at 11:37.
McRoy ended the spurt with a jumper at the 11:06 mark, but Kim Hanlon came right back with a triple to spark a 10-0 Seawolves run that put them in front by 18, 34-16. Stony Brook led, 51-31, at the break and took its largest advantage of the afternoon, 82-50, on a Kori Bayne-Walker jumper with 5:54 remaining in the second half.
