Around the League: November 22, 2009

Yesterday's games:
Hartford 70, Fordham 62
Joe Zeglinski had a double-double and Morgan Sabia added 20 points as the Hawks improved to 2-2. The visiting Rams (1-3) won the turnover battle and outshot Hartford but couldn't keep the Hawks off the boards (39-30 Hartford) or the free throw line. Andres Torres attempted 15 free throws for Hartford; Fordham managed just 16 attempts as a team.

George Washington 94, UMBC 51
The Retrievers were dominated in every respect, falling to 0-3 on the season. George Washington (3-0) pulled away immediately after tipoff, more than doubling UMBC in rebounds and winning every significant category. Lasan Kromah had his second consecutive good game, scoring 21 points on 7-of-10 shooting.

Detroit-Mercy 66, Albany 54
Albany hung with the Titans in the shooting department but couldn't hold on to the ball as the Danes (2-3) lost on their home floor. Detroit was led by Xavier Keeling and Eli Holman, who combined for 41 points. Holman added 14 rebounds for a double-double. Albany's starting backcourt of Mike Johnson and Tim Ambrose committed 10 turnovers, half of the Danes' 20.

Stony Brook 72, Wagner 48
Excellent defense from the Seawolves was more than enough to move Stony Brook to 3-0. Five Seawolves scored in double-figures; more importantly, Wagner was held to 29.8 percent shooting, allowing Stony Brook to build a 22-point halftime lead. Tyler Murray led all scorers with 13 points, but no other Seahawk contributed more than seven points. The Seawolves' next game is their toughest yet, with a trip to the University of Rhode Island on Tuesday.

Today's games:
Maine at Brown, 1:00 PM
Vermont at Rutgers, 4:00 PM
Robert Morris at Albany, 5:00 PM
