El-Amin, who finished with a game-high 19 points, got the ball from Dallis Joyner near half court out of Stony Brook's final timeout. He called off his teammates, took a few steps toward his defender and then pulled up for the game-winner just inside the 3-point arc.

The Seawolves can clinch the regular-season America East title with a victory over second-place Vermont on Wednesday at home.
El-Amin and Dougher sank three 3-pointers apiece for the Seawolves, who finished 9-for-20 from long range. Albany was just 6-for-17 on 3s.
