SBU beats ❄ and UNH on the Road

On a c❄ld 26 degree night in Durham, NH, Tyrell Sturdivant scored 20 points on 9-for-13 shooting, Roland Nyama had 14 points and Stony Brook pulled away late from New Hampshire for a 59-56 win on Thursday night in an America East Conference opener for both teams.

UNH’s Daniel Dion missed a 3 from the left corner with two seconds left before Nyama secured the rebound for the win. Stony Brook outscored New Hampshire 7-4 down the stretch. Bryan Sekunda’s 3 with 2:10 left put the Seawolves up, 55-52, for good. New Hampshire’s Jordan Reed made a pair of free throws before Sturdivant followed with a layup. Tanner Leissner made a pair of free throws to make it 57-56, but Sturdivant’s jumper with 15 seconds to go ended the scoring.

New Hampshire led 26-19 at halftime before Stony Brook used an 11-4 run in the first four minutes of the 2nd half to tie it on a Sturdivant jumper. While both teams didn’t really light it up NH was pretty ❄cold from the field shooting just 32% from the field (16 for 50) and 22.7% from downtown (5 for 22). Leissner led the UNH with 25 points and Jaleen Smith added 12 points.

iLuvBBall Alum watch on Stony Brook’s Mike Almonacy saw the Brentwood native score 4 points in 13 minutes of action.

Next up is the University of Albany Sunday 1/8 at home at 2PM.

In Honor of Shamoya Mckenzie

13 year old Shamoya Mckenzie was shot in the head by a stray bullet while heading home from basketball practice with her mother and two other family members. The incident happened in Mount Vernon, NY on December 31st, 2016 just hours before the New Year. Shamoya was a star basketball player who played on many tems including the Mount Vernon Junior Knights, the Mount Vernon Lady Elites, and the Mount Vernon High School JV Lady Knights. Her ultimate goal was to attend the University of Conneticut (UCONN) and then transition into the WNBA.

Her mother and the entire family are devasted by this tragic, brutal and senseless act of gun violence within their community.

Based on this unfortunate circumstance they would appreciate your support to help with these sudden expenses.

Thank you in advance and continue to pray for them as they mourn this tragic and senseless death of their angel.

iLuvBBall is doing their part to help spread the word and would appreciate if you could donate to their GoFundMe campaign if you can. Thanks.
