BANGOR, Maine — Ahmad Clark turned in a superlative effort for the UAlbany men's basketball team, putting up 23 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in Sunday's 66-60 road win over Maine.

Clark scored the first 13 points for UAlbany (7-4 America East, 14-12 overall), which also got 11 points from Trey Hutcheson and eight points each from Cameron Healy and Antonio Rizzuto. Healy, who sat out UAlbany’s game on Wednesday with an injury, returned to the lineup and extended his streak of games with a made 3-pointer to 57.

Behind Clark’s hot start, the Great Danes used a 10-0 run to lead by as many as 14 in the first half before Maine (3-9, 7-19) closed the half of a 13-6 run to pull within 36-34 at the half.

Coming out for the second half, UAlbany scored the first six points to open up a comfortable lead, which was eventually pushed to 11 on a pair of occasions. Maine uncorked a 12-2 run to pull within 56-55 with 6:04 to play, but 3-pointers from Hutcheson and Clark got the UAlbany lead back to seven.

Maine got within four on a couple of occasions, but Clark scored UAlbany’s final four points — including two free throws with 14 seconds left — to seal the win.

UAlbany’s Romani Hansen grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds, his fifth double-digit rebounding effort in his last six games.

UAlbany plays its next two games at home, starting Thursday against UMBC.
