It's hard to beat the same team in as many days, and we're seeing that first hand with a lot of these back-to-backs in recent weeks. However, I think Stony Brook's simply the better team here and were able to get almost whatever they want in the first game against Binghamton. If we were getting a few more points I may change course, but for right now I'll lean towards Stony Brook laying the points.
