Quotes . . .
"I think we really needed this win. Ray (McGrew) had a great game. Jameel was really good, but what I really like is Tre's (Puriefoy) effort. Five assists, no turnovers and his defense was great. We're making progress and this is one we're going to build off entering Tuesday's game against the defending Patriot League champs."

"We haven't played here in a while so it was definitely great to be back. Every time we play here it's special. The community's support for us is great. We did a good job of getting back into that groove on offense and setting the tone on defense."

"Any time a team in America plays at home it's a different vibe. I feel like we play with a lot more energy when we're at home. We've got to do a better job of taking that energy and putting it toward away games."

Turning Point
Stony Brook used multiple spurts in the second half. The Seawolves turned a three-point deficit into a nine-point lead after redshirt freshman Roland Nyama's (Frankfurt, Germany) offensive rebound and layup made it 41-35 with 13:15 to play. The Greyhounds closed to within three, 42-39, but Stony Brook outscored Loyola Maryland, 25-13, the rest of the way.
