Proctor leads women's hoops to sweep of New Hampshire, 60-47
Feb. 2, 2013
Stony Brook, N.Y. - Sabre Proctor led all scorers with 17 points, while Chikilra Goodman added 11 points and six rebounds as the Stony Brook women's basketball team earned a two-game season sweep of New Hampshire, 60-47, at Pritchard Gymnasium Saturday afternoon.
Cari Reed paced New Hampshire (8-13, 3-6 AE) with 14 points, and the Wildcats owned a 32-27 edge on the glass.
Proctor and Reed were named America East players of the game.
"I thought it was another great team effort. I think our defensive intensity really ignited our offense, and it helped us push the tempo for 40 minutes."
--Head Coach Beth O'Boyle
Stony Brook claimed its largest lead of the afternoon, 45-31, after Brittany Snow tallied a lay-up off a feed from Goodman with 13:07 remaining in the game, but a 14-6 run by the Wildcats over the next nine and a half minutes, capped off by a second-chance hoop by Morgan Frame, closed the gap to six, 51-45.
Goodman responded quickly, stealing the ball from Frame and going the distance for a lay-up in transition as SBU went up, 53-45, at the 3:17 mark. With just over 2:30 left in the second stanza, Reed fouled Snow. The freshman forward hit 1-of-2 from the charity stripe to extend the lead to nine, 54-45.
Proctor all but sealed the deal when she grabbed her own rebound and laid it in to put Stony Brook in front by double-digits, 56-45, with 1:14 remaining in the game. SBU hit its free throws down the stretch en route to a win on its home court.
