Albany, the America East Tournament champions, shot 57.4 percent from the field en route to its seventh victory in eight games, with Gary Johnson hitting 6-of-8 attempts in a 13-point, seven-rebound effort.

Mount St. Mary's (16-17), the surprise winner of the Northeast Conference Tournament, nearly overcame a 19-point deficit midway through the first half behind Will Miller's career-best 21 points on a 7-of-12 performance from 3- point range.
