ALBANY, N.Y. – There were two pieces of positive news for Stony Brook as its bus headed back to Long Island Wednesday night. First, the calendar clearly says February. And second, the Seawolves won’t have to return to SEFCU Arena until 2017.
Other than that there was little to be cheerful about for Stony Brook, who saw its 18-game winning streak (the nation’s longest by six games) come to a crashing halt, 82-70, before a thrilled sell-out crowd of 4,527 at SEFCU Arena.
When the season began, Albany head coach Will Brown was not sure how he would get Joe Cremo playing time. Continue reading “Albany’s Joe Cremo Embraces Key Role Off The Bench”

ALBANY, N.Y. – From his seat on the Yale bench, Justin Sears was constantly looking up the SEFCU Arena overhead scoreboard Sunday afternoon. Maybe he didn’t believe what he saw. Maybe he thought if he stared at long enough it would change. Or perhaps he just couldn’t watch what was actually happening on the court.
What was abundantly clear Sunday afternoon was that Yale is lost without him. Sears sat out with an ear and sinus infection, and Yale – who led SMU by eight at the half and hung with Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium last week – was absolutely dismantled by the reigning America East champs, 88-54.
It marks the most points Yale (3-3) has allowed in regulation since New Year’s Eve 2011 at Florida, and times when the Bulldog defense (ranked 55th in defensive efficiency last season) gave up 1.29 points per possession the last couple of seasons have been few and far between (if there are any).
