Chikilra Goodman scored 14 of her 18 points in the second half as visiting Stony Brook rallied for a 48-44 win over New Hampshire in an America East Conference women's basketball game Saturday.

Goodman scored on a driving layup with 2:48 remaining to give the Seawolves (9-6, 1-1) a 43-41 lead. Brittany Snow hit a mid-range jumper with 2:13 left to extend the lead to 45-41.

Jessica Previlon added 12 points and Snow had eight points and five rebounds for Stony Brook.

New Hampshire (5-9, 0-2) led 28-24 at the half, but Stony Brook held the Wildcats scoreless for the first 6:43 of the second half and took a 31-28 lead.

Stony Brook struggled from the free-throw line, going just 8-for-25. The Seawolves overcame their poor showing at the line with solid defense and held New Hampshire to 26.8 percent shooting.

Stony Brook shot 45 percent from the field.

"That was a very physical team we just competed against, so this was a great win for us in conference on the road," Stony Brook coach Beth O'Boyle said. "They are strong inside, but we battled with them all game and we're really happy to come away with a win today.''
