ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- Murphy Burnatowski scored 19 points to pace Colgate over Albany 69-60 on Saturday.

The Raiders (5-4) got 16 points from Austin Tillotson on 6 of 7 shooting and Damon Sherman-Newsome added 15.

Sam Rowley scored 21 points and added 11 rebounds for Albany (5-5). Gary Johnson added 14 points while D.J. Evans chipped in with 11. John Puk gathered 10 boards in the effort.

Colgate scored the first 10 points of the game, but Albany immediately went on a 12-0 run to erase that lead. The Great Danes led at half 36-34 after Johnson's emphatic dunk with 27 seconds before intermission.

After Johnson made one of a pair of free throws at 16:04 of the second half, Albany led by four at 41-37. But Burnatowski made three treys in the second half - the first broke a 41-all tie and the last stretched Colgate's lead to six with 4:27 remaining.
