The Seawolves are coming off a 16-13 season in 2022-23, while the Red Storm finished with a record of 17-14. Both teams are expected to be competitive again this season, and their meeting on November 7th should be a close and exciting one.
The Seawolves are led by fourth-year head coach Geno Ford. Ford has led Stony Brook to two America East Tournament appearances in his three seasons at the helm, and he is hoping to lead the Seawolves to their first America East Tournament championship since 2016.
Stony Brook returns several key players from last season’s team, including senior guard Tyler Stephenson and junior forward Tanahj Pettway. Stephenson is Stony Brook’s leading scorer and playmaker, while Pettway is a versatile forward who can score and defend.
The Seawolves also have a number of talented newcomers, including freshman guard Omar Abdel-Razek and freshman forward Miles Latimer. Abdel-Razek is a highly-touted recruit who is expected to make an immediate impact for Stony Brook.
The Red Storm are led by second-year head coach Mike Anderson. Anderson has led St. John’s to one NIT appearance in his one season at the helm, and he is hoping to lead the Red Storm to their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2019.
St. John’s returns several key players from last season’s team, including senior guard Andre Curbelo and senior forward Joel Soriano. Curbelo is St. John’s leading scorer and playmaker, while Soriano is a double-double threat.
The Red Storm also have a number of talented newcomers, including freshman guard Dylan Addae-Wusu and freshman forward David Jones. Addae-Wusu is a highly-touted recruit who is expected to make an immediate impact for St. John’s.
The Stony Brook-St. John’s matchup is a clash of two different styles of play. The Seawolves are a slow-paced team that relies on their defense and rebounding. The Red Storm are a fast-paced team that relies on their athleticism and three-point shooting.
The Seawolves will be looking to slow down St. John’s high-powered offense. The Red Storm averaged 78.1 points per game last season, which was the second-most in the Big East.
St. John’s will be looking to defend Stony Brook’s perimeter shooters. The Seawolves shot 39.3% from behind the three-point line last season, which was the third-best mark in the America East.
The Stony Brook-St. John’s game is too close to call. Both teams are evenly matched, and they have a lot of respect for each other.
I am predicting a close game that comes down to the wire. The team that makes the most plays down the stretch will win.
The Stony Brook-St. John’s game will be televised on FS1 on Tuesday, November 7, 2023, at 7:00pm ET. You can also stream the game on the FOX Sports app.
