Tribe Comeback Comes Up Just Short vs. Stony Brook

(Tribe Athletics)

Post Game

Box Score

WILLIAMSBURG — Trailing by as much as 13 and by nine with just five minutes remaining, William & Mary battled all the way back to take the lead twice in the final 2:05. Stony Brook had the answers through, hitting a pair of big shots late to hold off the Tribe, 63-59, inside Kaplan Arena on Saturday afternoon.

W&M (7-10, 2-2 CAA) trailed 56-47 with 5:03 remaining, before scoring the game’s next 10 points to take its first lead. Junior Caleb Dorsey canned a triple off his own offensive rebound, and graduate student Sean Houpt followed with a trifecta from the left corner to put W&M in front 57-56 with 2:05 left. Sophomore Chase Lowe started the play with a blocked shot on the defensive end that led to a fastbreak and the trey.

Stony Brook’s Tyler Stephenson-Moore hit a tough runner in the lane to put the visitor back in front, but Lowe made another big defensive play. He picked up a loose ball and raced the other way for a lay-up to give W&M a 59-58 lead with 43.2 seconds remaining.

On the ensuing Stony Brook (9-8, 2-2 CAA) possession, Aaron Clarke knocked down a right wing 3-pointer with 25 seconds left to give the Seawolves the lead for good.

Houpt led the Tribe with 17 points on 5-of-6 from 3-point range, while Caleb Dorsey notched his second-straight double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds. Lowe rounded out the Tribe’s double-digit scorers with 13 points to go with six rebounds.

The Tribe knocked down seven of its 10 3-pointers in the second half, but finished the contest shooting just 34.5%. On the other side, SBU shot 43.8% on the day and was 18-of-21 (85.7%) from the free throw line.

Stony Brook opened up a double-digit lead midway through the first half as the Tribe missed 12 of its first 13 shots.

A Dean Noll 3-point play pushed the margin to 20-9 at the 5:13 mark. The Seawolves advantage reached its largest at 27-14 on a Chris Maidoh lay-up with just under three minutes remaining in the half.

W&M scored five in a row to get within eight. Gabe Dorsey’s right wing 3-pointer narrowed the gap to 27-19 at the 1:46 mark.

The Green and Gold drew within seven on a Lowe putback with 28 seconds left, but a pair of Stephenson-Moore free throws gave the visitor a 32-23 lead at the break.

Just over four minutes into the second half, the Stony Brook lead was 12, 44-32, following an Andre Snoddy fastbreak lay-up.

A personal 6-0 run by Caleb Dorsey closed the Tribe within 50-47 with 9:40 left. He knocked down a top-of-the-key 3-pointer, before scoring three more the old-fashioned way on a driving lay-up while getting fouled.

Noll led all scorers with 19 points, while Stephenson-Moore and Maidoh added 12 and 10 points, respectively, for the Seawolves.
