Defending America East Champion Albany Defeats Men's Basketball
The Great Danes came out on fire, hitting 13 of their first 15 field goal attempts and all four three-point tries. They built a 29-9 lead with 9:31 remaining in the first half and increased the margin to 52-25 at intermission.
Junior guard Brian Hodges led UMBC with 11 points, but hit only three of 16 shots from the floor. Senior guard Chris Pugh, UMBC’s America East Player of the Game, and freshman post Justin Fry scored 10 points each. Spadafora hit both his shots from behind the arc and posted a season-high eight points.
The Great Danes now have six straight wins over UMBC in the series and lead it, 7-2.
UMBC returns home to entertain Stony Brook on Saturday night at 7:00 p.m.
