Albany beats Stony Brook 51-50 to win America East title

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) When the final buzzer sounded, Albany's Peter Hooley was mobbed on his home court, fans and teammates reacting in disbelief after his winning 3-pointer.

Just six weeks after his mother had died of colon cancer, the junior star from Australia hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 1.6 seconds left, giving the Great Danes a stunning 51-50 victory over Stony Brook on Saturday and the America East tournament title for the third straight year.

"When you've got angels watching, you can do anything," said Hooley of the only 3 Albany made all game.
