Stony Brook 67, UAlbany 61 FINAL
It was Stony Brook that made their chances count and ended the University at Albany's season for the second consecutive year with a 67-61 victory in the America East quarterfinal at Chase Arena on the campus of the University of Hartford.
With the Great Danes (16-16) trailing, 63-61, sophomore co-captain Logan Aronhalt fouled Leonard Hayes with 16 seconds to play, after what he thought was a missed shot.
The problem was that John Puk had actually blocked Chris Martin's shot and the shot clock was at four.
"It hit somehting, I wasn't sure," Aronhalt said. "I thought it hit the rim."
The Seawolves (14-16) made their final four free throws to escape with the victory.
Senior Tim Ambrose scored a game-high 24 points in what will go down as his final collegiate game for UAlbany.
Martin scored a team-high 18 points for Stony Brook, which advances to play the winner of the Binghamton-Vermont game, in Sunday's semifinal.
