|Volleyball drops 3-2 decision to Stony Brook|
VESTAL, N.Y. - Visiting Stony Brook (16-9, 2-2 America East) scored the first six points of the fifth and decisive game to hold off Binghamton (7-12, 2-1 AE) in a conference match Friday evening at East Gym. The loss was Binghamton's first in America East play, though the Bearcats still remain in a first-place tie. The Seawolves posted a 30-16, 23-30, 30-26, 27-30, 15-9 win.
Senior hitter LaToya Byerly (Beaumont, Texas/Southern University) led both teams with 24 kills. She was one of four Stony Brook player with double-digit kills. The Seawolves enjoyed a big offensive advantage, producing a .276 attack percentage to Binghamton's .146. The Seawolves were nearly undone, however, by 17 service errors.
Binghamton was led by sophomore middle blocker Anne Crocus (Bethlehem, Pa./Freedom), who produced 14 kills and 10 blocks. Crocus leads the America East in blocks. Sophomore setter Jennifer Smith (North Tonawanda, N.Y.) chipped in 22 assists, 10 kills and five blocks. Junior Nicole Savin (Port Jefferson Station, N.Y./Comsewogue) added 24 digs for the Bearcats, who were playing without leading setter Glorimar Ortega.
"I thought even though we lost it was one of our better efforts of the season," BU head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "It's tough to come back from such a big lead in the fifth game. We fought back but couldn't quite turn the corner."
The Bearcats will have little time to reflect on the loss, however, as Hartford visits the East Gym Saturday afternoon for a 4 p.m. conference tilt.
