Stony Brook, N.Y. - The Stony Brook men's basketball team and St. Francis Brooklyn engaged in a tight contest that featured five ties and nine lead changes, and it was the Terriers that came out on top after Wayne Martin tipped in a missed layup with 1.5 seconds remaining in the game to beat the #Seawolves, 70-68, Sunday at Pritchard Gymnasium.
The #Seawolves had a chance at the buzzer, but sophomore Carson Puriefoy's 40-foot three-point heave rimmed out, holding everyone breathless for a moment. Puriefoy led Stony Brook with 17 points.
The loss snapped Stony Brook's 13-game home winning streak.
Head Coach Steve Pikiell's Reaction
"Today was a tough game against a well-coached, good opponent in St. Francis Brooklyn. That team beat Miami and took Syracuse to the wire, so we knew coming in that we were facing talented players. I liked our offense; we scored 68 points despite not playing at our best, but we once again struggled with foul trouble. Jameel and Eric were in foul trouble all day, and it hurt our ability to defend and make plays inside. But again give credit to St. Francis; they made winning plays. We'll get right back to work and get ready for our next game."
The game was tight the entire way with neither team holding more than a nine-point lead. The #Seawolves led 66-61 with 2:54 remaining in the game, but the Terriers fought back and took the lead, 68-66, with 40 seconds remaining on Jalen Cannon's three-pointer.
The #Seawolves answered with senior Anthony Jackson (Columbus, Ohio) driving through the lane and throwing up a floater that swished to tie the game with just under 20 seconds to play. That was plenty of time for St. Francis Brooklyn, which gave the ball to Sheldon Hagigal. He drove baseline and threw up a layup that missed, but Martin was in front of the rim at the right time, tipping in the miss and giving the Terriers the two-point edge.
With 1.5 seconds left, the ball was inbounded to Puriefoy, who drove down the line and took a clean shot from about 40 feet away. The ball got much of the rim, but failed to go down.
Inside the Numbers
- Stony Brook shot 53.2% for the game and 50% (3-for-6) from the three-point line. The #Seawolves struggled at the charity stripe, making just 15 of 23 free throw attempts (65.2%).
- St. Francis Brooklyn shot 50% from the field and 38.9% (7-for-18) from three-point range.
- Puriefoy led the #Seawolves with 17 points and four assists.
- After a monster weekend last week, sophomore Jameel Warney (Plainfield, N.J.) got into foul trouble and was limited to five points and five rebounds. His streak of 16 consecutive games with double-digit points was snapped.
- Senior Dave Coley (Brooklyn, N.Y.) had 12 points and is now just 53 away from 1,000 for his career.
- Sophomore Rayshaun McGrew (Chicago, Ill.) scored a career-high 12 points.

DETROIT - In a game that had ups and downs, thrilling moments left and right and overtime after overtime, it came down to sophomore Jameel Warney (Plainfield, N.J.) doing what he does best - rebound and score. He capped a 32-point, 21-rebound performance with a game-winning layup with five seconds left in triple overtime to lift the Stony Brook men's basketball team to a 104-102 win over Detroit in the final game of the 2KSports Classic benefiting Wounded Warrior Project Sunday at Calihan Hall.
Warney's 32 and 21 were both career highs and the 21 rebounds set a new #Seawolves Div. I single-game record. Senior Anthony Jackson (Columbus, Ohio) had 24 points, including the game-tying, buzzer-beating three-pointer at the end of regulation and a four-point play in the second overtime that helped Stony Brook (5-2) tie the game again. The game was Stony Brook's longest since a four-overtime marathon against Boston University on Jan. 19, 2009.
Warney was named the 2KSports Classic Detroit subregional MVP, and Jackson claimed All-Tournament honors.
Head Coach Steve Pikiell's Reaction
"I'm very proud of our team. We were able to come back and beat a very talented and well-coached Detroit team. Playing against the host school, third game in three days, I told our guys we needed to be road tough. And they responded with an incredible performance."
You can't just name one turning point in this game. It started with Stony Brook using a 20-0 run early in the second half, including seven points from Warney, to turn a 10-point deficit into a 10-point lead, 54-44.
Detroit fought back to tie the game at 60-60 and then take a 68-62 lead with 2:40 to play. The #Seawolves came right back with layups and free throws to set up a final play with five seconds left. Sophomore Carson Puriefoy (Wenonah, N.J.) drove up court and passed to Jackson in the near corner in front of the Stony Brook bench, and the senior point guard buried the tying three to make it 75-75.
In the first overtime, the #Seawolves held an 81-77 lead with 1:41 left, but the Titans used free throws to tie the game and send it to a second overtime.
This time Detroit went up five, 93-88, after a pair of free throws from Juwan Howard Jr.. But Jackson was there again to drill a three-pointer and draw contact for a foul. He made the four-point play to get the #Seawolves within one. Detroit made only one of two at the free throw line, and Puriefoy again came up big with an assist to Warney for a layup to knot the score again at 94-94.
In the third overtime, the #Seawolves finally ended the marathon. With the game tied at 102-102, Howard missed the second of two free throws and then missed a jumper with 43 seconds left that could have given the Titans the lead. That set the stage for Stony Brook to win it on a final shot. Jackson took a jumper on the wing, but his shot missed, and Warney was there to grab his 21st rebound and put it back in for the score. Howard missed a game-winning three-point attempt at the buzzer, ending the thrilling game.

DETROIT - Senior Anthony Jackson (Columbus, Ohio) tied a Stony Brook men's basketball Div. I record with a career-high 36 points, but his herculean effort was not enough as Toledo took advantage of 42 free throw attempts to come away with a 103-99 win over the #Seawolves Friday night at Calihan Hall. The game is part of the 2KSports Classic benefiting Wounded Warrior Project.
Jackson's 36 points matched the program's Div. I record, originally set by D.J. Munir on Nov. 19, 2001 against Sacred Heart. It also is tied for the seventh-most points in a game by a Stony Brook player in the program's entire history across all divisions. Jackson, who is averaging 21.6 points a game so far this season, also set career highs in field goals made (12) and three-point field goals made (7).
Stony Brook falls to 3-2 on the young season, and Toledo improves to 4-0.
Head Coach Steve Pikiell's Reaction
"We had a great offensive night, but we continue to struggle adjusting to the new rules. We have to figure out how to defend without fouling because we're giving teams too many points at the free throw line. But give credit to Toledo, that's a talented, well-coached team, and they earned the win."
Senior Anthony Jackson on his career night
"I was focused on the game plan and took what the defense gave me. I was feeling good at halftime during warmups and took the open shots, which were falling for me today. But at the end of the day, 36 points doesn't mean anything in a loss. We have to rebuild and come back tomorrow strong on the defensive end against FAU."
Stony Brook trailed nearly the entire game, but kept fighting back, keeping the deficit in single digits for all but three minutes of the game. Jackson kept raining three-pointers, including back-to-backers at 5:34 and 5:08 to get Stony Brook within three, 86-83, with 4:53 left to play. Twenty-six of his 36 points came in the second half.
But Toledo's offense was too strong on the night. Rockets forward Nathan Boothe scored the game's next six points to push the lead back to nine, 92-83, with 3:17 on the clock. The #Seawolves kept fighting with a few more three-pointers, but Toledo was solid from the free throw line at the end, going 7-for-10 in the final two minutes, and Stony Brook ran out of time.
Inside the Numbers
- Stony Brook shot 59.3% (35-for-59) for the game and 64.7% (11-for-17) from three-point range.
- Toledo shot 52.5% overall (31-for-59) and 53.8% (7-for-13) from behind the arc. The Rockets benefitted from 42 free throw attempts, making 34 of them.
- Jackson's 36 points were a career high, eclipsing his 24-point effort against Haverford on Nov. 10.
- Jackson's 36 matched D.J. Munir for most single-game points by a #Seawolves player in the program's Div. I history. He's also the first since Muhammad El-Amin on Feb. 13, 2010 to score 30 in a game for the #Seawolves.
- Jackson also set career highs in field goals made (12) and three-point field goals made (7).
- Sophomore Jameel Warney (Plainfield, N.J.) had 17 points and four assists.
- Senior Dave Coley (Brooklyn, N.Y.) had 13 points and matched a career high with five assists.
- Senior Eric McAlister (Hightstown, N.J.) recorded a career-high three blocks.
News & Notes
- This was the first-ever meeting between Stony Brook and Toledo and first time Stony Brook has ever faced a team from the Mid-American Conference.
- The 99 points were the most scored by Stony Brook against a Div. I opponent in program history and most in any game since dropping 107 on New England College on Nov. 21, 2000.
- The 103 points allowed were the most Stony Brook's given up in a game since allowing Maryland to score 107 on Dec. 6, 2000.
