Davis' late 3 lifts Morgan women past Stony Brook

Senior Moneshia Davis hit what proved to be the game-winning 3-pointer from the left corner with 10.1 seconds remaining Sunday to help the Morgan State women's basketball team escape with a 66-63 nonconference overtime win over visiting Stony Brook. The victory was the Bears' first over the Seawolves in four meetings and avenged last season's 65-48 loss. Davis' basket helped the Bears (2-2) improve to 2-0 at home and prevented what would have been a disappointing loss for Morgan State, which led by as much as 15 points and never trailed in regulation. Davis finished the evening tied with fellow senior Bianca Jarrett for game-high honors with 19 points. Davis, who shot 6-for-10, including 5-for-8 from three-point range also added a game-high five steals, while Jarrett, who also made five 3-pointers, finished with a game-high eight assists. Junior Whitney Southerland came off the bench to record 12 points. Stony Brook (1-2) was led by Jessica Previlon, who came off the bench and tallied a team-high 17 points and a game-high 13 rebounds. Natalie Myers and Brittany Snow added 13 and 12 points, respectively.
