LOWELL, Mass. (AP) -- Akeem Williams scored 18 points as Massachusetts Lowell recovered from a slow start to beat UMBC 59-54 in America East Conference play on Sunday afternoon.

Four free throws by Rodney Elliott in the final two minutes put UMBC within three, and Elliott grabbed an offensive rebound for a second chance with 0:12 to go. His 3-point attempt in the final 2 seconds didn't drop, and Kerry Weldon hit two free throws for Massachusetts Lowell to end the game.
