Elis look for first win for the season

The women’s basketball team hosts Stony Brook tonight at 7 at the John J. Lee Amphitheater — their first home game since Nov. 9.

Stony Brook is 3-4 on the season, with wins over Iona, Sacred Heart and, most recently, Hofstra. One of its losses, by a score of 65-54, came against Marist — the same team that defeated the Bulldogs by 15 points eight days ago.

The Elis might still be hard-pressed to pick up their first victory of the season despite Stony Brook’s mediocre performances thus far.

The Seawolves are led by 6-0 guard Aly Young (8.4 ppg, 5.4 rpg) and 6-1 forward Dana Ferraro (8.1 ppg, 10.1 rpg), who was named America East Defensive Player of the Year for 2005-’06.

For the Bulldogs, practice this week was focused on their on-ball defense and closeouts in preparation for the game.

“This will help us against Stony Brook because, typically, they have quick guards who penetrate from the top,” guard Stephanie Marciano ’08 said.
