WEST HARTFORD, Conn. – The problem for Stony Brook when it comes to this part of the season is no matter what they do, people will come back with, “Well, it’s not March yet, is it?”

However, it basically served to give junior Jameel Warney free reign he probably didn’t need, but his conference Player of the Year campaign was given a nice boost with 32 points and 18 rebounds as the Seawolves cruised to a 74-59 win in the regular season finale for both teams.
