Olaniyi scores 21 to lead Stony Brook past UMBC 74-63
Olaniyi was 7-for-15 shooting but made all seven free throws for the Seawolves (15-8, 6-2 America East) while Foreman was 6-for-18 shooting with three 3-pointers. Andrew Garcia added 12 points for Stony Brook.
Stony Brook led 30-25 at halftime and a 7-0 run sparked a second-half surge that pushed the lead to as many as 16. UMBC cut that to nine three times in the last 3:51, but Olaniyi pushed it back to 11 a final time with free throws at 54 seconds.
Stony Brook returns to action Wednesday against UMass Lowell. UMBC hosts Hartford on Wednesday.
