Around the League: 12.22.08

Monday's games:

Albany 68, St. Francis (N.Y.) 56
After a competitive start to the game, the Great Danes pulled away midway through the first half and cruised to their third-straight victory. Anthony Raffa made eight free throws to aid his team-high 14 points while both Will Harris and Brian Connelly contributed 13. The win was Albany's (8-4) fourth on the road this season as the Great Danes are in the midst of a four-game road trip, that will end with their first conference game against Hartford on January 3rd. For the Terriers (no, not those Terriers), forward Nigel Byum netted a team-high 14 points.

No. 22 Baylor 74, Hartford 59
The Hawks gave a valiant effort playing their second-straight game without Joe Zeglinski, who's out with a sprained ankle. Jared Von Rosenberg led the team in points (19), assists (9) and rebounds (6) but BU's (no, not that BU) Curtis Jerrells edged him out. Jerrells notched a triple-double, piling up a team-high 17 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. The Hawks (4-8) pulled within three points twice in the second half, but couldn't stave off the nationally-ranked Bears. Jerrells' triple-double was the first by a Baylor player since Brian Skinner accomplished the feat on Nov. 29, 2007.

Maine vs. Boston College, 1:00 p.m.
Rider vs. Binghamton, 7:00 p.m.
