The Stony Brook Seawolves men's basketball team topped the Binghamton Bearcats 70-60 in an America East quarterfinal playoff game on Long Island on Wednesday night.  The Seawolves jumped out to a 16 point lead  at the end of the first half and never yielded despite Binghamton's comeback efforts in the second half.

The Bearcats cut the lead down to eight points with 2:22 left in the game but could never come closer. Willie Rodriguez led the Bearcats in scoring with 20 points and also grabbed 14 rebounds for a double-double.  Bobby Ahearn scored 15 points and grabbed seven rebounds for BU.

Lucas Woodhouse was on fire for the Seawolves.  An America East First Team All-Conference selection Woodhouse ripped the cords for 24 points including five three-point baskets to key the Seawolves victory.

Stony Brook advances and will host Albany (who defeated Hartford on Wednesday) in a semi-final contest on Monday night.  The Bearcats end their season with an overall record of 12-20.  With the win the Seawolves move to 18-12.
