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.
