Wednesday's games:

Stony Brook 67, Air Force 64
The Seawolves finished off their non-conference schedule with a three-point win against Air Force to give SBU seven non-conference victories -- their best start since joining Division I basketball in 1999. The seven wins rank second behind Vermont and Albany in America East for the most non-conference W's so far this season. As for the game, freshman Bryan Dougher scored a game-high 22 points (4-of-9 from beyond the arc), including a pair of clutch free throws with eight seconds left to give SBU back its three-point advantage. Muhammad El-Amin chipped in 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting, while Demetrius Young led the team in boards with 10. Air Force's Matt Holland attempted a 3-pointer at the buzzer that would have tied the game, but it clanked off the back iron. Anwar Johnson netted a career-high 25 points for the Falcons and the mark was also a season-high by any Air Force player this year. Up next for the Seawolves will be a bout against defending conference champion -- Maryland-Baltimore County on Saturday at the RAC Center.

No games scheduled. We wish you all a very happy and healthy new year.
