The Hartford Hawks Men’s Basketball team battled against the Stony Brook Seawolves in a thriller on Sunday afternoon. This past weekend, the Hawks and Seawolves partook in an America East showdown, with the first game held in Long Island, then in West Hartford. Game 1 was taken by the Seawolves 88-82 in a very intense fought battle, and the second game delivered the same way.

The Seawolves took a 35-29 lead into the half; however, Hartford Junior Moses Flowers led the way as the Hawks’ looked to make it three wins in their last four games. Flowers dropped 24-points in 34-minutes and had an overall field goal percentage of 41.7, which gave the hawks a massive spark.

Senior Austin Williams wanted in on the scoring fun as well, dropping 16-points and continues to show the America East that he still means business. Following his performance, Williams was named the America East Player of the Week. The Hawks, behind the valiant effort of Flowers and Williams, erased a six-point deficit coming into the second half and turned it into a winning margin of 4 points.

With three wins in their last four games, the Hawks are now the sixth seed in the America East Conference. As March slowly approaches, the Hawks will look to defend their first AE Title and hope for another visit back to the Big Dance. Hartford will continue this short homestand as they host the UMBC Retrievers on Wednesday, followed by the NJIT Highlanders on Saturday.
