Stony Brook forward Jameel Warney scored 20 points and guard Anthony Jackson had 19 as the Seawolves held on to beat host Loyola-Maryland 76-69 on Thursday night in Baltimore.

Warney also had a big block on Loyola standout guard Dylon Cormier (25 points) in the final minute to help Stony Brook hold on after the Seawolves led by 16 points in the first half.

Cormier had 18 points in the second half as the Greyhounds rallied but could not get the ball into the hands of Cormier enough down the stretch.

Jackson, a senior, made six free throws in the final minute for Stony Brook, which improved to 8-4. The Greyhounds fell to 5-4.

Loyola rallied to tie the score at 63, but Jackson made a field goal with 2:47 left to give Stony Brook a 65-63 lead, which it would not give up.

"They made the plays at the end of the game and we didn't," Loyola coach G.G. Smith said.

Stony Brook led 41-25 late in the first half, but Loyola scored the last three points of the half to cut it to 44-31 at halftime.

The Stony Brook bench outscored the Loyola subs 24-9 in the first half.

But Loyola outscored Stony Brook 22-11 to start the second half to pull to 55-53 with 8:00 left in the game. The Greyhounds made 15 of their first 16 free throws in the second half.

Cormier entered the game averaging 23.6 points per game, the fifth-best mark in the country.

It was the first game for Loyola since Dec. 7, when the Greyhounds lost 70-58 at Mount St. Mary's as Cormier scored just 13 points.

Next up for Loyola is a home game on Saturday against St. Joseph's of the Atlantic 10 Conference.
