PARIS - Last night the Stony Brook men’s basketball team overcame a sluggish first half to put away Charenton 74-61 to complete is five-game exhibition tour with a 4-1 record. Dallis Joyner scored 16 points to pace the Seawolves, and Anthony Jackson chipped in 13. Tommy Brenton had 10 rebounds.

After the game, some of the players and head coach Steve Pikiell met with Stony Brook alum Roger Tellio ’72, who came to the game to support his Seawolves.

Today was the final full day in Europe for the team, and it was a free day for everyone to do as they pleased. Some went shopping, others visited the Eiffel Tower again and some went to the Louvre Museum. At the end of the day, everyone gathered for a team meal and then went to the Louvre Garden, where there was a carnival. Everyone participated in some games, and two brave Seawolves took part in a ride that will be described with some video once we get back to the U.S.

This will be the final entry while in Europe, but we still have some material to post, including videos from London and Paris (the Internet here did not lend itself to uploading videos) and a few other interesting things that happened on the trip. So please continue to check the blog this week.
