Around the League: 12.01.08

Monday's games:

Binghamton 74, Quinnipiac 58
Four Bearcats reached double figures in scoring as Quinnipiac lost to an America East opponent for the second time this season (they've also defeated AE foes twice with wins against Maine and Hartford). Dwayne Jackson and D.J. Rivera both scored a game-high 15 points, while Reggie Fuller added 12 and Malik Alvin tallied 11. Rivera has easily been one of the most impressive players in the conference, as he's averaging 20.3 points per game and 7.3 rebounds per game. Jackson scored 11 points during a 22-9 second-half run by Binghamton (3-2), as the Bobcats managed just six second-half field goals. Both Justin Rutty and James Feldeine netted 15 points for Quinnipiac.

Albany 57, Bryant 47
The Great Danes (5-2) notched their fifth win in a row after beginning the season 0-2, by beating the team that they defeated to kick off their winning streak -- Bryant University. Anthony Raffa proved Tim Ambrose isn't the only Dane who can string together back-to-back supreme efforts as a game after he scored 22, he netted 17 against Bryant to go along with six rebounds and five assists. Brian Connelly contributed 13 points while Ambrose added 13, 11 of which came during a 19-4 Albany run after the Bulldogs had pulled within four, 28-24. Barry Latham netted a team-high 16 for Bryant, which shot a season-low 32.7 percent from the field.

Tuesday's games:
Dartmouth vs. Vermont, 7:00 p.m.
Stony Brook vs. New Jersey Institute of Technology, 7:00 p.m.
