Klockgether's 17 points help Stony Brook women beat Maine, 59-47

Junior Cassie Klockgether scored a career-high 17 points as the Stony Brook women's basketball team defeated visiting Maine, 59-47, Saturday afternoon at Pritchard Gymnasium.

Klockgether shot 5-for-9 from three-point range for Stony Brook (8-17, 6-7 America East). "I was happy to see Cassie score the way she did tonight,'' coach Michele Cherry said. "She's been nagged by injuries for most of her career, and it was great to see what she's capable of when she's healthy."

The Seawolves forced Maine (7-18, 3-10) into 25 turnovers and recorded double-digit steals for the fourth consecutive game. "We did a great job of forcing turnovers and turning them into points,'' Cherry said.

Crystal Rushin had 13 points and nine rebounds, Joia Daniels scored 10 points and Misha Horsey added seven assists for Stony Brook, which outscored Maine 30-3 in bench points.
