BURLINGTON, Vt., March 16 (UPI) -- Mike Black scored 14 points Saturday to lead Albany to a 53-49 win over Vermont in the America East championship tournament, and a berth in the NCAA Tournament.

Iati, who finished with eight points, did not attempt a shot until the closing minutes. His first 3-pointer in the home stretch gave Albany the lead for good with 2:36 left in regulation.

Trey Blue and Clancy Rugg led Vermont (21-11) with 10 points apiece. The Catamounts (21-11) were the defending conference champs.
