How Did Stony Brook Do Last Time Out?

Things to Look Out For With Stony Brook:

  1. Depth of Scoring: Stony Brook had three players score double digits against Columbia. While the leading scorer (Roland Nyama) came off the bench, it shows that BC might be up against a three pronged attack with Stony Brook.
  2. New Kid on the Block: Jeff Boals took the reigns for his year with Stony Brook as the head coach. He will be looking to improve on his debut, a loss to Columbia.
  3. These Kids Might Be Pretty Good: Stony Brook isn’t a sexy name in the community, but the Seawolves were a tournament team last year. Don’t underestimate them.

Predictions:

I don’t know what to make of the Columbia game. Columbia is picked fifth in the Ivy League, but Stony Brook is a reigning tournament team.

I’m worried.
