LEWISBURG, Pa. — The UAlbany men’s basketball team couldn’t hold on to several leads against Bucknell on Saturday and dropped a 65-64 non-conference decision.

The loss denied Great Danes head coach Will Brown his 300th career win at the school.

UAlbany (5-5) had double-digit leads in both halves. The Great Danes led by as many as 15 in the first half.

In fact, the Great Danes had the lead for 29 minutes, 43 seconds, compared to Bucknell’s 8:42.

Ahmad Clark led the Great Danes with 18 points. Cameron Healy had a double-double with 15 points and 11 rebounds.

“We did a pretty good job in the first half, and then we started turning the ball over and allowed them to get back into the game,” Brown said. “A lot of the first half was self-inflicted on our end, and then in the second half, we didn’t play a lot of smart basketball. We’re putting too much pressure on Ahmad and Cameron to create offense. This is a game that we should have closed out, but we didn’t make plays when we need to, and we didn’t play smart basketball.”

The Great Danes visit Boston College on Tuesday.
