Senior Ebone Henry recorded a double-double of 16 points and 10 rebounds, while classmate Lindsey Lowrie led all players with 18 points as the University at Albany women’s basketball team defeated LIU-Brooklyn, 67-50, in a non-conference game Tuesday evening at SEFCU Arena.

The Great Danes improve to 1-1.

UAlbany scored the first basket of the game on a layup by Sarah Royals and relinquished the lead only once throughout the entire game. LIU tied the game at 7-7 with 12:42 on the clock on a jumper by Sophie Bhasin, but the Great Danes regained a four-point advantage with back-to-back baskets by Tammy Phillip and Henry with 11:33 left in the first half. Bhasin, who led the Blackbirds with 17 points, hit consecutive shots, including a three-pointer that gave LIU its only lead of the game, 12-11, with 9:45 to play.

The Great Danes built up a seven-point lead, 25-18, with just under four minutes in the first half, before LIU threatened, getting to within four after a trey by Krystal Wells. However, a long-range shot from Lowrie, followed by a jumper by Julie Forster, gave UAlbany its biggest lead of the half, 30-21, with 36 seconds on the clock. Wells pulled the Blackbirds back to within six on three straight free throws, setting the halftime score at 30-24.

UAlbany, which shot 44.1 percent (26-for-59) from the floor, got 12 points from Megan Craig to have three players in double figures scoring. Henry added six steals and four assists, while Forster recorded six points and pulled down nine caroms.
