PICK: I’m probably sticking with Stony Brook here, but I could go either way. The last time these teams saw each other back on January 19, the Seawolves managed a 74-71 win. Stony Brook shot a cold 34.4 percent from the field in that one, but stayed in it by winning the rebounding battle 43-42 and coughing up only nine turnovers. This rematch should be a tight affair as well, but Stony Brook should have the upper hand if they play to their capabilities.
