UMBC returns to AE Title Game

The University of Maryland-Baltimore County got a game-high 29 points from senior Jay Greene to advance back to the America East championship game by defeating the University at Albany 64-58 at SEFCU Arena on Sunday afternoon. 

The Retrievers (15-16) will meet the winner of today's second semifinal between Binghamton and New Hampshire, next Saturday at 11 a.m. 

UAlbany got 21 points from Tim Ambrose and 14 more from Will Harris. 

The Great Danes (15-16) had a chance to tie the game with less than 30 seconds to go, but Louis Barraza's 3-pointer from the right side was off the mark. 

Greene scored UMBC's last eight points, including five shots from the free throw line. 

"Jay Greene was due," UAlbany coach Will Brown said. "Unfortunately, we were the team on the receiving end."
