Seawolves women’s basketball earned their 20th straight victory Saturday at Island Federal Arena, extending the nation’s longest winning streak.
During a team huddle in the final minute, Kaela Hilaire vowed to her teammates that Saturday’s game would not head to overtime.
Hilaire then ensured the extra period would not be required.
She produced two steals in the final 20 seconds and the Stony Brook women’s basketball team held on for a 52-50 victory against New Hampshire at Island Federal Arena.
Stony Brook improved to 23-1 overall and 11-0 in the America East.
The overall win total matches the most victories in a season in head coach Caroline McCombs’ six seasons at the program’s helm.
Stony Brook also clinched a first-round home game in the America East tournament with Saturday’s win.
