Matt Senk and his frustrated Stony Brook Seawolves were home at this time a year ago, thinking about what should have been. After setting the school record with 42 victories and breezing through the regular season, a second straight trip to the NCAA tournament seemed a lock. But the Seawolves lost in the America East conference tournament and were denied an at-large berth for the field of 64 teams. Fueled in part by that stunning end to its season, Stony Brook came back this year and left nothing to chance. The Seawolves (46-11) won the conference tournament and earned an automatic spot in the NCAA tournament. They are in Coral Gables, Fla., riding an 11-game winning streak and set to open up Friday against host Miami (36-21).
