Stony Brook dominates the NIT First Round Against Massachusetts

USA TODAY Sports

My only question is where were these Sea Wolves in the America East?

They dominated in this NIT first round game at UMass. As a 7 seed given the auto-bid from winning the America East regular season title, but falling in the semi-finals to U Albany, they did a number on the 2 seed UMass Minutemen. It did help them that Chaz Williams, UMass' go to guy had some foul trouble in the beginning, couldn't connect, and then had to be taken out due to an injury in the second half. So saying the Minutemen had a bit of a problem without their top player is a bit of an understatement.

The game also highlighted Stony Brook's Tommy Brenton. When even the announcers have no idea what position to call him, he's a definite MVP. He showed that with a great no look pass for a layup under the basket and a huge inbound down court with his left hand for an easy layup near the end of the game. This guy is going places.

With their first ever postseason win, the Seawolves are looking to get to the end at Madison Square Garden in their home state of New York. To do that they have to first get passed Iowa in the second round. Good luck to my fellow America East-ers in their quest to MSG and giving the conference something to be incredibly proud of.
