— Dylon Cormier’s layup and free throw with 1.5 seconds remaining gave Loyola (Md.) a 67-64 victory over the University at Albany men’s basketball team Sunday.

Cormier, who finished with 16 points, took a long inbounds pass from Anthony Winbush and got fouled by D.J. Evans after Alb­any’s Jacob Iati tied the game with a three-pointer.

Erik Etherly led the Greyhounds (4-1) with 23 points and grabbed seven rebounds, and Cormier added 16 points in a consolation bracket final in the Hall of Fame Tip Off.

Loyola led by 18 points in the first half and was ahead, 59-47, with 8:34 remaining before the Great Danes (3-2) began to chip away. Iati’s tying three-pointer with 3.1 seconds remaining capped a 17-5 Albany run.

Winbush scored a season-best 12 points for Loyola, and had five assists and seven rebounds.

Blake Metcalf led Albany with 12 points and also had eight rebounds, and Iati and sophomore guard Peter Hooley had 11 apiece.

The Danes will finish up their five-game road trip on Tuesday at South Carolina State.
