STONY BROOK — Cameron Healy scored 24 points Thursday, and UAlbany held off a late Stony Brook rally to post a 74-70 America East men’s college basketball victory.

Antonio Rizzuto added 18 points for the Great Danes (5-7 AE, 10-17 overall), and Kendall Lauderdale came off the bench to score 17.

Akwasi Teboah scored 22 points to lead the Seawolves (9-3, 21-6), who used a 6-1 run to cut the Great Danes’ lead to 69-65 with 1:02 left in the game.

“We started five freshmen tonight, and we went with five freshmen again to start the second half," UAlbany head coach Will Brown said. "I thought we played with great poise when we had opportunities not to. Stony Brook made some runs at us, and we looked them right in the eye and made a run right back. The bench was good. This was Kendall Lauderdale’s best game in a UAlbany uniform. I just thought we did a lot of good things. Rizzuto and Healy took turns lighting it up. This is what we’re capable of, now we have to work on sustaining it.”
