“Binghamton made some big plays and capitalized on our miscues,” Stony Brook coach Jeff Boals said. “In the first half, we had a lot of turnovers, which is uncharacteristic of this team, and they capitalized on that, but there is a lot we can learn from this one.”

Ahearn led Binghamton (10-11, 1-5 America East) with 21 points. Willie Rodriguez had 15 and Yosef Yacob added 14.

Lucas Woodhouse scored 15 points and Akwasi Yeboah had 14 for the Seawolves (10-9, 5-1). “I give our guys credit,” Boals said. “We came back from being down 13, took the lead back at the final media timeout. We battled.”Combined news services
