The Retrievers went back on top moments later on a layup by freshman forward Malik Garner, but the Seawolves answered with an 8-1 run to regain the lead for the good.
Stony Brook led 35-23 at the break and extended its advantage to 16 points on a 3-pointer by Coley early in the second half.
UMBC cut the Seawolves’ lead to 11 on a number of occasions later in the half, but the Retrievers couldn’t cut the deficit to single digits. They trailed by 12 after freshman guard Rodney Elliott made a 3-pointer with 11:27 to go, but Stony Brook pulled away with an 11-1 run over the next seven minutes.
