Binghamton Men's Hoops falls to Stony Brook at home 61-54

Posted:
VESTAL, N.Y. - Sophomore guard Marlon Beck led four players in double figures with 15 points but Stony Brook's Carson Puriefoy netted 27, including 14 of his team's final 16 points and the visiting Seawolves held off the Bearcats 61-54 Sunday afternoon at the Events Center.

Binghamton used a 9-0 run midway through the second period to take its first lead of the game, 46-45, with 5:57 left. But Puriefoy put Stony Brook on his back and tallied seven straight points to spark an 11-0 Seawolves run that gave them a double-digit lead with 2:23 left. A driving layup from Beck pulled BU to within eight, 56-48, with 1:59 left but Puriefoy answered with a three-pointer and BU got no closer than seven the rest of the way.

"I was proud of my team today," head coach Tommy Dempsey said. "We had a great competitive spirit, outrebounded the best rebounding team in the league with a very small group and showed a great will to win. Unfortunately we didn't play better down the stretch after we took the lead but I thought our kids fought hard for 40 minutes."

Beck hit 6-of-9 from the field, including 3-of-5 three-pointers in a foul-laden 24 minutes. Freshman center Bobby Ahearn hit 5-of-10 for 11 points. Working against Stony Brook standout center Jameel Warney, undersized Ahearn grabbed four offensive rebounds (six total) and chipped in a block and two steals in 29 minutes. Freshmen Justin McFadden and Willie Rodriguez added 10 points apiece.

Rodriguez reached double figures for the seventh time in the last nine games and Beck hit double digits for the third time in the last four games.

Stony Brook entered the game ranked ninth in the nation in rebound margin (+9.2) but BU held a 38-34 advantage on the glass.

Binghamton next travels to Baltimore for a Wednesday night game at UMBC.
