UAlbany 73, UMBC 72, 2OT

ALBANY - The University at Albany didn't play its best on Wednesday evening, but they don't ask how, they ask if.

The Great Danes were able to claw and scrape their way to a 73-72 double overtime victory over UMBC, in front of 2,145 fans at SEFCU Arena.

UAlbany (2-0, 8-7) got a career-high 27 points from Peter Hooley and 20 points and 12 rebounds from Sam Rowley, but it was John Puk's single free throw with 0.4 seconds remaining that sealed the victory.

The Retrievers were poised to pull the upset, as freshman Rodney Elliott scored 22 and Devarick Houston added 19. UMBC (0-2, 4-11) is now 0-10 on the road this season, including 0-2 in America East play.
