Around the League: November 19, 2009

Yesterday's games:
Hartford 75, Marist 38
The Hawks' closely contested loss against Baylor suggested improvement from last season, but few expected such an explosive performance from Hartford (1-2) against any opponent. Joe Zeglinski had 22 points on 8-of-11 shooting and Joel Barkers added 15 points in just 15 minutes as the Hawks ran away with this one. Marist (0-2) held its own on the boards but shot below 25 percent from the field and never got anything going on offense.

Loyola(MD) 69, UMBC 66
The Retrievers outshot their opponent, but a four-turnover differential and significant rebounding advantage ultimately proved enough to give the Greyhounds the win. Loyola (2-1) got 21 points off the bench from Jamal Barney. UMBC (0-2) rode Chauncey Gilliam's 22 points as the sophomore helped the Retrievers come back from 11 down to take the lead late in the second half, but Barney's layup with 11 seconds left put Loyola on 67 points, a figure the Retrievers could not match.

Maine 59, Delaware State 56
The Black Bears were down by as many as 12 points early in the second half but recovered in time to secure a lead and survive multiple attempts to draw level by Delaware State (2-1). In a game played at an extremely slow 53-possession pace, Maine (2-1) got 27 points and 20 rebounds from its frontcourt of Sean McNally and Troy Barnies; Barnies' layup with 4:44 on the clock gave Maine a lead it would hold for the remainder of the contest.

Boston University is the only America East team in action today.

Tomorrow's games:
Binghamton at St. Bonaventure, 7:00 PM
Alcorn State at Albany, 7:30 PM
New Hampshire at Maryland, 8:00 PM
