"In the second half, we changed it up a little bit and played a little free-lance," said Albany foward Pete Stanish. "We started running and getting some lay-ups." Of Albany's 18 second hair field goals, eight were on layups, and Stanish had four of those in netting 12 points in that half. He tied center John Dieckelman for Dane scoring honors with 14, who had 10 tallies of his own in the final period. The game started slowly, with Albany jumping out to a 4-0 lead on jump shots by co-captains Ray Cesarc and Rob Clune. A pair of Tom Martinelli (game high 19 points) free throws and a Brian Apt shot from the side, tied it up at 4-4. But after the Danes took an 8-6 advantage on Dicckelman's spinning lay-in with 11:37 left in Ihe opuiing half, the Engineers had to play catch-up for good.
