STONY BROOK, N.Y. -- Marcus Rouse came off the bench to score 16 points, and Jameel Warney had 12 points and 10 rebounds as Stony Brook defeated Vermont 65-48 Friday night in a matchup of the America East Conference leaders.
Tommy Brenton added 13 points, six assists and six rebounds for the Seawolves (19-6, 10-2), who won their 16th consecutive regular-season home conference game.
Stony Brook, which led 35-29 at halftime, started the second half with a 20-5 run. Warney scored eight of the Seawolves' first 13 points in that stretch.
Rouse scored 11 of his points in the first half and finished the game 6 of 8 from the field, including 4 of 5 from 3-point range.
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.
