Stony Brook 75, Albany (NY) 70


STONY BROOK, N.Y. (AP) - Carson Puriefoy scored 17 points and Stony Brook won its sixth straight, defeating Albany 75-70 in each team's regular-season finale Sunday.

The Seawolves (23-6, 14-2 America East Conference) trailed 65-64 at 4:17 after Albany's Mike Black hit two free throws. Stony Brook's Ron Bracey answered with a go-ahead jumper, and the Seawolves hit their last seven free throws to lock up the win.

With the loss and Hartford's win over Vermont, Albany (21-10, 9-7) falls into the fourth seed in the America East tournament. It'll face Maine in the first round Saturday.
