— Senior guard Jacob Iati scored a career-high 26 points to lead the Univer­sity at Albany men’s basketball team tp a 71-61 victory over Navy Friday night at Alumni Hall.

The victory was the 10th non-conference win for the Great Danes (10-3), the most wins before conference play in the Division I era.

Junior forward Luke Devlin, who has had a rough start to the season, found his rhythm and added 13 points for the Danes, and Sam Rowley finished with seven points and seven rebounds.

With the score tied, 11-11, UAlb­any got its offense going with a 12-0 run that was sparked by three three-pointers, two by Iati and one by Peter Hooley. The Great Danes led, 23-11, with seven minutes remaining in the half.

The Great Danes return home to host Brown at 4 p.m. Monday.
