|Green scores 20 as BU holds off Stony Brook, 64-59|
VESTAL, N.Y. - Senior guard Anthony Green (Philadelphia, Pa./International) scored a game-high 20 points and Binghamton (7-6, 2-1 America East) hit seven free throws in the final 2:37 to hold off visiting Stony Brook (5-8, 0-3 AE), 64-59 Saturday afternoon.
Green scored 15 points in the first half, as BU built a nine-point margin. Late in the second half, BU extended that margin to 13 before the Seawolves mounted a rally. Trailing 53-40 with 6:57 remaining, Stony Brook went on a 13-4 run that cut the deficit to four. After the teams traded points on four straight possessions, junior forward Jairus McCollum (Mt. Holly, N.J.,/Rancocas Valley) hit a jumper that pulled the Seawolves to within three, 62-59, with 23 seconds remaining. Sophomore forward Billy Williams (Milwaukee, Wis.) made a pair of free throws with 16 seconds left for the final margin.
"It was a good basketball game," BU head coach Al Walker said. "We hung tough - it was good to get a win when they forced us to make plays down the stretch. Anthony and Billy did a great job at the free throw line."
Senior forward Jeffrey St. Fort (Miami, Fla./Monsignor Pace) scored 11 of his 13 points in the pivotal second half. Senior guard Charles Baker (Missouri City, Texas/Westbury Christian) scored 11 points, and seven-foot sophomore center Nick Billings (Kodiak, Alaska) added seven rebounds and six blocks.
Stony Brook was led by junior guard D.J. Munir (Providence, R.I./Bridgton Academy), who netted 17 points.
Binghamton next hosts conference foe Hartford Wednesday at 7 p.m.
