STONY BROOK, NY -- A gallant second-half comeback by the Brown women's basketball team fell three-points short, as the Stony Brook Seawolves snapped Brown's four-game winning streak with a 60-57 win on Tuesday night.
The Seawolves dominated the first half, leading the entire game while pulling ahead by 15 at the half, 36-21. Brown spent the majority of the half in foul trouble while pulling up cold from the floor and playing sloppy basketball. As a team, the Bears shot only 36% from the field, while committing 13 personal fouls and turning the ball over a whopping 20 times.
The Bears rallied back in the second half, though, on the hot shooting of freshman guard Stephanie Bruce, who scored a career and team-high 16 points on perfect 7-for-7 shooting. Junior Rada Pavichevich pour in eight points for Brown, all in the second half, who came within three points twice, but were unable to capitalize further. A tough traveling call with under one minute to go, followed by a trio of Seawolf free throws, ended Brown's comeback bid just three points short.
Brown, now 8-8 overall, returns to the court this Saturday, when the Bears begin a three-game homestand with an afternoon meeting against Yale. Game time is set for 2:00.
