Bears Fall At Albany 57-50

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

 

After a stunning upset of Providence College Friday night, the Brown Bears hit the road to face a very good Albany team Monday.  Brown played a very solid game but fell to the Great Danes 57-50.

Coming off of his 28-point performance against PC, Bears junior forward Tucker Halpern led all scorers with 18 points including 4-7 from three point range.  Senior Matt Sullivan was the only other Brown player in double figures with 16.

For the second straight game, Brown had to play a majority of the game with their starting point guard Sean McGonagill on the bench in foul trouble.  None-the-less, the Bears put in a solid defensive effort holding Albany to just 17-52 (33%) from the field and 3-15 (20%) from three.  They also held Albany to just two field goals for the final 14+ minutes of the game.

But the Great Danes were able to get to the free throw line where they went 20-27 (74%) to Brown's 7-13 (54%).  Albany was led by Jacob Iati's 16 points.  Luke Devlin had 15, Mike Black 14.

The win lifted Albany to (11-3).  The 11 wins are a school record for most non-conference wins.  The loss drops Brown to (4-7).  

The Bears visit URI Friday night at 7pm.
