NORFOLK, Va. (AP) Jaron Cornish tossed in 22 points on 8-of-11 shooting from the floor and Akwasi Yeboah added 16 points and seven rebounds to guide Stony Brook to a 79-73 victory over Norfolk State on Tuesday night.

Jeff Otchere pitched in with 12 points, seven boards and two blocked shots for the Seawolves (6-1), who picked up their fourth straight win and are off to their best start since the 2009-10 season.

Nic Thomas hit four 3-pointers and scored 18 to pace the Spartans (3-5), who lost for the first time in four home games. Mastadi Pitt totaled 14 points and four assists, while Jordan Butler and Armani Branch scored 10 apiece.
