Burlington, Vt. - The Stony Brook women's basketball team held Vermont to without a field goal for the final 13:37 of the game and placed four #Seawolves in double figures in a resounding 83-49 win Thursday night at Patrick Gymnasium. The game was broadcast nationally on ESPN3.
Sophomore forward Brittany Snow scored a game-high 17 points and led a balanced attack with senior guard Chikilra Goodman adding 15 points. Junior forward Sabre Proctor and sophomore guard Miranda Jenkins tallied 10 points apiece.
Goodman and Snow led the way with seven boards each, and Proctor added six rebounds and a career-high four helpers.
With the victory, Stony Brook (14-5, 5-1 America East) matched its 2012-13 win total and its season-long unbeaten streak of four games.
Vermont dropped to 5-14 overall and 2-4 in league play.
Head Coach Beth O'Boyle's Reaction
"This was a tremendous team effort from start to finish. Our ability to control the glass helped us get out and score in transition. I am proud of the way we played."
The Turning Point
Vermont got within six, 44-38, after a Kylie Butler 3-pointer at 15:36 of the second half, but two Snow layups and a free throw by Jenkins put the Seawolves back up by double figures with 13:55 left. Butler closed the gap to nine, 49-40, on a jumper at the 13:37 mark, the last field goal Vermont would score for the rest of the night as Stony Brook utterly dominated the game thereafter.
Goodman started the surge with a pair of free throws on the other end. Harris then came away with a steal that led to a Proctor bucket and 53-40 Seawolves lead at 11:30. Kori Bayne-Walker forced a turnover on the next possession and fed the ball to a hustling Snow for a hoop in transition with 11:06 remaining to widen the gap to 15, 40-55. Snow later capped the game-changing 12-0 run when she went 1-for-2 from the stripe at 9:41 to give Stony Brook a 61-40 advantage.
