Stony Brook led 30-28 at halftime and couldn't shake the seventh-seeded Great Danes (14-18) after intermission. Sophomore Cameron Healy scored 10 straight points for Albany in a 10-1 run that gave the Great Danes a 70-67 lead with 2:50 left in the game. But Foreman nailed a 3-pointer to knot the score and Stony Brook sank 6 of 6 from the free-throw line in the final 51 seconds to pull out the win.
