Around the League: December 1, 2009

Yesterday's games:
Florida Atlantic 81, Albany 65
The Great Danes couldn't control Owl shooters, as Florida Atlantic (3-3) posted a eFG% of 60 and built an unassailable lead in the second half. Albany (3-5) did a good job offensively and on the boards but allowed four Owls to score in double figures, including 24 points for Greg Gantt. After the threesome of Will Harris (20 points), Tim Ambrose (19), and Mike Johnson (17), nine Danes combined for just nine points. That lack of balance does not bode well for Saturday's meeting with crosstown rival Siena.

Stony Brook 71, Lehigh 52
In what is fast becoming a trend, the Seawolves (5-1) clamped down on their opponent's offense and would not let go. Lehigh (3-3) scored 52 points in a 71-possession game. Stony Brook's previous four wins came against unimpressive competition, but Lehigh's victory against Quinnipiac suggests the Mountain Hawks are somewhat more formidable -- yet after John Adams' 13 points, no Lehigh player tallied more than eight.

Today's game:
Vermont at Dartmouth, 7:00 PM
