yes and ill add- over the past 10 years, on the men's side and the women's side, they figured out that if you are in a good conference, simply add a tournament (some didnt have them).  that way you get 1-2 more games in to boost your RPI, even if you lose.

even the IVY followed and added a tournament.

Stony Brook senior attacker Kylie Ohlmiller ​continues her record-breaking trajectory, surpassing Tewaaraton winners Jen Adams and Hannah Nielsen, respectively, to become the NCAA Division I all-time leader in career points (478) and assists (240). Ohlmiller paced the Seawolves’ second-ranked offense with 145 points, 7.63 points per game and 64 assists, all good for tops in the nation for the regular season. She propelled Stony Brook to an undefeated 19-0 record, a sixth consecutive America East Championship and the No. 5 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Islip, N.Y., native netted her second consecutive America East Offensive Player of the Year award, third America East Championship Most Outstanding Player recognition and was named to the all-conference first team for the fourth time. Ohlmiller is a finalist for the second time and would be the Seawolves’ first Tewaaraton winner.

And waiting for one of them is a Stony Brook team with plenty of motivation to prove why it deserved better than the 5-seed.  The Seawolves have averaged 18.26 goals per game, 2nd in DI only to Jacksonville, including scoring at least 20 goals nine times.  A trio of 100-point scorers on the team, Kylie Ohlmiller, Courtney Murphy and Taryn Ohlmiller, have a combined 369 points.

SB dominant so far in this one. I had to turn the volume off on the live video feed. The monotone voice of whoever is in the booth today  is brutal. Can we get some enthusiasm or even just some analysis? Ah c”mon.

LOL. I felt the same as you. They need to do a better job with that

Not nearly as close as the final 18-5 margin over UPenn might indicate. We sat our stars with about 9 minutes left up 18-2 and definitely went into a  offensive slowdown. Good sportsmanship and doubtlessly BC knows what is heading their way.

Hopefully Taryn is OK- looking forward to what should be a great game against BC.

Seawolves win and they are coming back home which should be huge. Use the committee's disrespect as continued motivation.

No. 4 Boston College vs. No. 5 Stony Brook (Saturday, May 19 in Newton, Mass. at 1 p.m.)

BC cruised to its 20th straight win, 16-10, over Princeton—it was the first time the pair of programs had squared off against one another.
Stony Brook improved to 20-0 over Penn, 18-5, in the most dominant performance we’ve seen thus far in the NCAA Tournament and moves to 6-5 all-time in NCAA Tournament history.


COURTNEY MURPHY’S TEWAARATON RESPONSE
On Thursday evening, the 2018 Tewaaraton finalists were announced, and the name tossed around the most in the “snub” discussion was Courtney Murphy’s. Murphy, who was in contention for the 2016 finalist discussion and redshirted last year due to an ACL tear, opened the NCAA Tournament with an offensive tear vs. Penn. She posted a game-high nine points on a game-high six goals and game-high three assists.

I don’t know how you can see this field and not pick the Seawolves. I feel rage for this team unlike any team in the men’s bracket. Straight up disrespect. Let me tell you what winners do with disrespect: They use it to fuel their progress. They raise that rage monster all day in a musty cage until it’s time to let it out onto the field. This is Stony Brook’s time. WE ARE ALL OHLMILLERS!Dave Anderson

Stony Brook is used to bracket controversy, and this year’s five spot raised eyebrows. But there’s a difference in the current mindset: SBU doesn’t care. The Seawolves don’t intend to watch someone else celebrate on their home field. NCAA all-time leading goal scorer Courtney Murphy didn’t swap a job on Wall Street for a fifth year just to break a record, and Kylie Ohlmiller has never met a big moment she didn’t like. Watch out. Dave Anderson

19-0. #1 in all polls for most of the year. #5 seed in the NCAA tournament (somehow). Championship weekend in their home stadium. Kylie Ohlmiller and Courtney Murphy’s senior year. Their last chance to prove that Stony Brook is a top, possibly the top team. Stony Brook has more motivation than a team could possibly need and the talent to make the tall task that is their road to an NCAA championship possible.Dave Anderson

With the women’s Final Four and championship at Stony Brook and the dominance they’ve displayed throughout the season, it’s definitely the year for the Seawolves. The team plays fast, hard, and together, and that combination with the skill they have will be tough to beat for any opponent. Dave Anderson

Stony Brook, controversially dealt the No. 5 seed, appeared to vent its frustration in an 18-5 blowout of Penn and now will hit the road to play at No. 4 seed Boston College, which demonstrated its depth in a 16-10 win over Princeton — which was bounced from the tournament two days after defeating Syracuse in overtime.

NCAA quarterfinal matchups: Navy at No. 1 Maryland, Northwestern at No. 2 North Carolina, No. 6 Florida at No. 3 James Madison and No. 5 Stony Brook at No. 4 Boston College.

STONY BROOK SUFFOCATES PENN, GETS READY TO HIT ROAD

Spallina has insisted time and again that defense is what has driven the Seawolves to new heights with each passing year of his seven-year tenure. The goals are sometimes flashy, but the defense is often suffocating, and it reaffirmed its dominance Sunday afternoon.

Hosting the second round of the NCAA tournament, fifth-seeded Stony Brook throttled Penn, 18-5, behind Murphy’s nine points (six goals, three assists) and a defense that held the Quakers to just 18 shots.

One of the few zone defenses in the nation, Stony Brook thrives when it’s cutting off passing lanes and playing aggressively. The starting unit of Carolyn Carrera, Mackenzie Burns, Carlee Janelli and Brooke Gubitosi excelled in front of Anna Tesoriero, who made nine saves.

Throw in the first-half defense of Ally Kennedy and Samantha DiSalvo, and the Seawolves held a team riding the high of a 15-14 overtime win over Penn State in the first round Friday night to just two first-half goals.

“I’m fired up about it,” Spallina said. “We did a really good job of making them extremely uncomfortable, and that’s really when our defense is at our best … The biggest thing is making them do what we want them to do as opposed to them dictating where the ball’s going.”

Penn coach Karin Brower Corbett praised Stony Brook, agreeing with the general consensus that Stony Brook was seeded too low.

“As I said before, I think that they should have been a higher seed. I had never seen them live, and they are impressive,” Corbett said. “I think their strength is their shooting. They’re very good shooters, and I think their basic skills are great. They play at a high pace, and they have a lot of threats on the attack. Their defense is obviously good, kept us to not many goals. We were open some on the inside, and we have to catch and finish. I don’t think we did that well today.”

“If you’re going to write our story, it would not be that Stony Brook’s going to be home the whole playoffs,” he said. “There’s going to be some kind of adversity … We’re going to go to BC, but we’ll be back here in two weeks, sitting in the same seats, happy again.”

Stony Brook women rout Penn in second round of NCAA Tournament

Although this wasn’t another run-of-the-mill matchup against an overmatched America East team, the Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team still asserted its standing as one of the nation’s best. Hosting the second round of the NCAA Tournament, the fifth-seeded Seawolves (20-0) defeated Penn, 18-5, Sunday to advance to Saturday’s quarterfinal at fourth-seeded Boston College.
