The Great Danes led nearly the entire way, as Iati staked them to a 6-0 with a pair of three-point goals on the first two possessions of the game. UMBC would claw back at tie the score at 22-all on a field goal by Rob Gogerty with 4:10 remaining in the half, but after the teams exchanged baskets, Iati scored seven points in a 9-3 run which closed the half and gave Albany a 33-27 halftime advantage.
