BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — Stony Brook led in the final minute but lost to Binghamton, 71-67, and saw its winning streak end at six games yesterday.
Bryan Sekunda hit a three-pointer with 49 seconds remaining to give Stony Brook a 67-65 lead, but Bobby Ahearn sank a free throw with 24 seconds left and Timmy Rose hit a three-pointer with 20 seconds to play to put Binghamton ahead 69-67. Ahearn iced it by hitting two free throws with one second left.
“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
