Stony Brook releases non-conference sked

Stony Brook University's men's basketball team -- which won 22 games, and the America East regular season championship last season under head coach Steve Pikiell -- released its 2010-2011 non-conference schedule on Thursday.

The schedule is highlighted by the team's season opener, at UConn, on Friday, Nov. 12. The Seawolves will also travel to play at Notre Dame on Sunday, Dec. 19. And they'll play at defending Ivy League champ and Sweet 16 participant Cornell on Saturday, Jan. 8.

Stony Brook earned its first Division I postseason berth a year ago, hosting Illinois in the first round of the NIT, falling 76-66. The program went Division I in 1999.
