The Stony Brook Seawolves have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the Bryant Bulldogs at 6 p.m. ET Friday at Chace Athletic Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'
The Seawolves were within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Saturday as they fell 77-72 to the Yale Bulldogs.
Meanwhile, Bryant suffered a grim 97-71 defeat to the Cincinnati Bearcats on Sunday. A silver lining for Bryant was the play of guard Charles Pride, who had 23 points in addition to six boards.
Stony Brook is the clear underdog, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. Those who got lucky with them against the spread on Saturday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
The losses put Stony Brook at 2-6 and Bryant at 6-3. Two offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Seawolves are stumbling into the matchup with the 14th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 63.9 on average.
