Lucas Woodhouse made five 3-pointers and scored 24 points and Stony Brook pulled away early to beat fellow SUNY Institution Binghamton 70-60 in an America East Tournament quarterfinal game Wednesday night.
Akwasi Yeobah set career highs with 21 points and 16 rebounds for the Seawolves (18-12), as they notch their first game this season with two 20-plus point scorers.
Woodhouse, who has eight games of at least 20 points this season, hit his fifth 3 and the Seawolves led 47-33 early in the second half. Binghamton closed to 54-43 on Marlon Beck’s 3-pointer, but Yeobah scored four straight and Stony Brook again led by double digits, 58-46. Willie Rodriguez’s layup with 41 seconds left made it 66-59, but Stony Brook made four free throws to seal it.
Binghamton’s Everson Davis tied it at 5 with a free throw, but Woodhouse and Yeobah hit two 3-pointers apiece amid a 24-3 run and the Seawolves led 29-8 en route to a 39-23 halftime lead. Rodriguez scored 20 points and grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds for Binghamton (12-20).
Up next on Monday the Seawolves will host yet another fellow SUNY Institution, the third-seed Albany, after the Great Danes defeated Hartford 100-71.
