— Sophomore center Megan Craig scored a career-high 27 points on 12-for-17 shooting to lead University at Albany to a 62-49 win over Dartmouth in a non-conference game Saturday at SEFCU Arena.

The Great Danes improved to 3-2 on the season, while the Big Green fell to 1-2.

Dartmouth started the game with an 11-2 run over the first five minutes of play, but the Great Danes kicked it into high gear, outscoring the Big Green, 21-2, over the next 10 minutes.

Faziah Steen hit a jumper for the Big Green to get Dartmouth back on track, and nailed two free throws at 3:41 to cut it to seven, 25-18. However, Ebone Henry and Sarah Royals scored on back-to-back layups to put UAlbany back on top by 12 with under a minute to go.

UAlbany came out of the locker room firing on all cylinders, building a 40-21 lead behind eight straight points from Craig, along with a layup by Julie Forster, with 14:35 to play. Steen played the roll of rally-ender again for Dartmouth, hitting two free throws, but Craig responded immediately after at the other end of the court, to keep UAlbany ahead.

Steen scored a team-high 15 points for Dartmouth, while Kamala Thompson added 10 points for the Big Green. UAlbany held Dartmouth to 31.3-percent (15-for-48) shooting from the floor, forcing the Big Green into 26 turnovers.

Besides her career-high point total, Craig added nine rebounds.
