Albany, N.Y. – Riding a seven-game winning streak and fresh off arguably one of the biggest wins in the program’s Division I history, the No. 2 Stony Brook women’s basketball team begins play in the America East Championship against No. 7 UMBC. Tip is set for Friday at noon on ESPN3.

Last Time Out

Powered by junior guard Jessica Ogunnorin’s career-high 18 points, Stony Brook (22-7, 13-3 America East) ended Albany’s (25-4, 15-1) 38-game America East winning streak in a 66-56 upset Saturday afternoon on ESPN3. Senior guard Chikilra Goodman recorded a double-double on 13 points and 14 rebounds. The loss was the first for Albany since Jan. 28, 2012, a 62-55 setback to Hartford, the longest streak in conference history and tied for the longest in the country. It also ended Great Danes’ quest for a second straight perfect America East regular-season record.

Scouting the Retrievers

UMBC (4-24, 3-13) is coming off a double overtime victory at Binghamton Saturday. Freshman forward Sara Tarbert leads the team with 13.7 points and 6.9 boards per game.
