Albany outlasts Alcorn State 71-55

Nov 21, 2009 - 2:56 AM ALBANY, N.Y.(AP) -- Will Harris scored 15 points and Derrek Tartt added 13, leading Albany (N.Y.) to a 71-55 win over Alcorn State on Friday night.

Tartt was 2-for-2 from beyond the arc, while Harris hit 2 of 3 for the Great Danes (2-2) in the 2K Sports Classic. Albany outrebounded the Braves 43-26.

The Braves (0-4) stayed close early, and a Jonathan Boyd 3-pointer pulled Alcorn State to within 12-11 about 6 minutes into the game. But a pair of 3s from Harris and Mike Black fueled an 11-1 run and the Great Danes cruised from there.

Albany led by eight points at halftime and outscored the Braves 35-27 in the second half.

The Great Danes shot 46.4 percent from the field (26-for-56) compared to just a 35.1 percent mark (20-for-57) for Alcorn State.
