In a foul-plagued game on both sides, the University at Albany picked up another big road win Tuesday night.

Junior forward Sam Rowley scored 20 points, as the Great Danes held off a second-half rally from Brown to post a 74-68 win.

UAlbany (5-4) led at the half, 41-27, before Brown went on a late 15-5 run to come within 62-59 with 2:28 left. But that was as close as the Bears would get, as Rowley sunk a pair of free throws to extend the lead, and Brown never came closer than four points the rest of the way.

Clutch foul shooting was the key for the Great Danes. UAlbany was 10 of 12 from the free throw line in the final two minutes.

Brown (6-3) committed 32 fouls in the contest, and UAlbany shot 76.1 percent (35-for-46) from the line.

Senior swingman Gary Johnson joined Rowley in double figures with a career-high 16 points. Sean McGonagill scored a game-high 22 points for Brown.

“Everything they do is through McGonagill,” said UAlbany head coach Will Brown. “We had Gary Johnson guarding him, because we wanted to go with the length and really make him work.

“I thought we gave up a few easy baskets because we were so focused on McGonagill,” Brown added. “We couldn’t let him beat us. That was a good road win.”
