ALBANY, N.Y. (AP)—Tim Ambrose had 19 points including the game-winning free throw and 11 rebounds as the University at Albany capped a thrilling last-minute comeback and defeated Boston University 62-61 in America East action Thursday night.
Will Harris added 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Great Danes (8-6, 1-1 America East).
After falling behind 20-19 with nine minutes left in the first half, the Great Danes trailed for nearly the entire final 29 minutes until Ambrose knocked down two clinching free throws with 12.3 seconds remaining.
That followed a traditional 3-point play with 33.7 seconds to go that put the Great Danes within one.
Ambrose scored the game’s final five points.
Boston University’s Matt Wolff hit the rim on what would have been the game-winning jumper as time expired.
Albany’s comeback was spurred on in part by the bench play of Louis Barraza who had three 3-pointers.
