UAlbany had five players score in double digits for the first time since 2008, led by Julie Forster, who recorded a double-double of 10 points and 12 rebounds, as the Great Danes posted a 71-39 win over Maine in an America East Conference game on Saturday at SEFCU Arena.

UAlbany improved to 12-3 overall and 3-0 in league play, while Maine fell to 1-15 and 0-3.

Lindsey Lowrie, Ebone Henry and Megan Craig each had 12 points for the Great Danes.

Shereesha Richards also had 10 points for UAlbany.

Lowrie made back-to-back three-pointers to give UAlbany a 21-11 lead with 7:17 left in the first half.

A three by Henry helped UAlbany finish the half on an 11-2 run for a 34-16 lead.

The Great Danes continued their rout in the second half, as Margarita Rosario drained a three-pointer to put UAlbany up by 20, 44-24, with 14:47 to play.

In the first three games of the league slate, UAlbany is winning by an average of 37 points.

The Great Danes, led by Sarah Royals and Lowrie with five each, reached the 20-assist mark for the first time since 2004.

“We are playing as hard as we can,” UAlbany head coach Katie Abrahamson-Henderson said. “We have lots of players who are X-factors. We move and share the ball, and it’s more fun for them to play that way. They are hungry and humble, and we want to stay that way.”

The Great Danes committed just four fouls in the game.
