BALTIMORE -- Dave Coley scored a game-high 17 points and Stony Brook never trailed in defeating Maryland-Baltimore County 67-60 Wednesday night in an America East Conference game.
Stony Brook had a huge, decisive edge at the free-throw line. The Seawolves were 20 for 26 from the stripe, while UMBC took just 7 free throws, hitting 5 of 7.
Stony Brook's 5-of-11 3-point shooting included two treys apiece by Puriefoy and Coley, who also grabbed eight rebounds. The Seawolves had a 42-34 rebounding advantage.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
