HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Jameel Warney recorded his Division I-leading 20th double-double, and Carson Puriefoy scored 22 on Saturday night to help Stony Brook beat Hartford for the fifth-straight time 74-59.

Hartford (14-15, 7-9), which made 7 of 29 (24 percent) first-half field goals, including 2 of 9 from 3-point range, trailed by double figures the rest of the way.
Corban Wroe's layup with 15:08 remaining pulled the Hawks within 45-35, but they went scoreless for five-plus minutes as the Seawolves scored 15 straight to seal it.
Wroe led Hartford with 17 points.
