tony Brook, N.Y. - For the second straight season, the Stony Brook men's lacrosse team will play 10 home games, coach Jim Nagle announced Wednesday.

The Seawolves will play a total of 16 regular season games in 2015, including a pair of first-time opponents.

"This year's schedule will be as challenging as we've faced since I've been at Stony Brook," Nagle said. "The early non-conference portion will be a great test for our guys. There's so much parity in the America East, and taking on Albany and UMBC in our first two conference games will be challenging. Vermont and Binghamton and Hartford always play us tough. We also look forward to welcoming UMass Lowell to the league."

Stony Brook will open the season at LaValle Stadium against Manhattan on February 7. The Seawolves beat the Jaspers, 12-8, last season. On Valentine's Day, Stony Brook will head west on the Long Island Expressway to face St. John's. Of the last four meetings against the Red Storm, the road team has been victorious each time.

Stony Brook will open a three-game homestand, beginning with Division I newcomer NJIT, which is led by former Seawolves assistant Travis Johnson, on February 20. Two days later, the Seawolves will take on two-time defending champion Duke. The month of February concludes with a game against Fairfield on the 28th.

The month of March features three road games and three home games. Stony Brook opens the month at Marist on the 3rd before an initial tune-up to conference play at Rutgers five days later.

The Seawolves, who have made 13 straight appearances in the America East Championship, will open conference play against Albany on March 14. The Great Danes lead the all-time series, 15-14.

Stony Brook will host UMBC a week later on March 21 before traveling to Vermont for a 1:30 p.m. game on March 28. The month ends with a non-conference contest against Quinnipiac on the 31st.

For the first time since 1993, Stony Brook will face Princeton in a game which will be played at LaValle Stadium on April 4. The Tigers lead the series, 2-0, having played both of those games in New Jersey.

America East newcomer UMass Lowell will host Stony Brook on April 10. Non-conference play concludes against Lehigh on April 12.

Stony Brook's 2015 home finale will be against Binghamton on April 18. The Seawolves wrap up the regular season at Hartford on April 24.
