Point guard Mike Black, who was questionable for the game because of a sore hip, made five of seven threes and scored 23 points with six assists in 29 minutes.

Jayson Guerrier (18 points) hit two threes to start the game, and he and Jacob Iati (14 points) each were 4-for-8 from three-point range.

Black, Iati and Guerrier were a combined 56.5 percent (13-for-23) from behind the arc.

Shaquille Mitchell led the Bulldogs (3-2) with 13 points and three rebounds.

Khalif Toombs (12 points), Adama Adams (12) and Darryl Palmer (10) were also in double digits for South Carolina State.

Guerrier made the first four shots of the game to put the Great Danes up, 11-0, with 15:16 remaining in the first half.

The Great Danes then hit six threes and a put-back dunk by

junior guard Gary Johnson to extend its lead to 21, 39-18, with 5:39 left in the half.

The Great Danes began the second half on a 15-6 run to hold a 29-point lead, 60-31, with 15:24 left in the game.

Black and Iati combined for three triples, and sophomore forward Sam Rowley made two consec­utive layups to cap the run.

UAlbany outrebounded the Bulldogs, 37-26.
