Martin hit the first of two free throws in a one-and-one situation and missed the second. With two fouls to give, Stony Brook fouled Jay Greene (Whitehall, Pa.) on consecutive drives to the basket. UMBC inbounded with 5.1 seconds remaining and Spadafora's jumper from nine feet was just a bit too strong just before the buzzer.
