The University of New Hampshire women’s basketball lost the battle of the backboards and lost the game, 79-59, to Stony Brook on Sunday in an America East Conference semifinal in Albany, N.Y.

Teasha Harris scored 14 points to pace a balanced attack for the second-seeded Seawolves, who advanced to play No. 1 Albany in today’s final. Stony Brook has won nine straight and 14 of its last 15.

The story of the game was rebounding. Stony Brook (24-7) controlled the glass to the tune of 48-25, with 20 of those rebounds coming on the offensive end. Chikilra Goodman led the way with 11.

UNH trailed 36-30 at halftime, but a 10-0 Stony Brook surge early in the second half proved to be the difference.

The Wildcats shot 40 percent from the field, while Stony Brook shot 44 percent.

Elizabeth Belanger had a team-high 18 for the Wildcats (19-12). Kristen Anderson added 11 with three 3-pointers and senior Kelsey Hogan, of Nashua, had 10.
