Tyrell Sturdivant scored 28 points, shooting 10-for-12 from the field and 8-for-10 from the line, as Stony Brook remained unbeaten in America East Conference play with an 86-75 win at UMass Lowell on Monday.
Sturdivant scored seven straight Stony Brook points in the second half for a 75-68 lead with 4:37 left, and his assist on Lucas Woodhouse’s three-pointer on the Seawolves’ next possession made it 78-70. UMass Lowell didn’t score again until the final minute.
Stony Brook (9-8, 4-0 America East) won its fifth straight.
Woodhouse made three of Stony Brook’s 11 three-pointers and had 17 points, five rebounds and seven assists. Roland Nyama had 10 points.
Said coach Jeff Boals: “To start out [conference play] with three out of four on the road and win three road games tells you a lot about who these guys are.”
Tyler Livingston hit five threes and scored 23 points for UMass Lowell (8-11, 3-2).
Women win, too. Kori Bayne-Walker broke the Stony Brook women’s basketball career assists record as the Seawolves (9-8, 2-2) put up a season-best point total in an 83-53 win over visiting UMass Lowell (3-15, 0-5).
Bayne-Walker had 15 points and six assists. Her fourth assist was the 418th of her career, surpassing the mark set by Mykeema Ford in 2007.
“Kori sees the floor so well,” Stony Brook coach Caroline McComb said. “That’s just who she is . . . It’s something that’s really special. She makes everybody better with what she does.” Combined news services
