Shereesha Richards had 26 points, Sarah Royals added 19 points and eight assists, and top-seeded Albany beat second-seeded Stony Brook 70-46 on Monday to win the America East title and earn the conference's automatic bid into the NCAA tournament.
Richards, America East player of the year and the first player to lead the conference in scoring (20.1), rebounds (9.1) and shooting percentage (62.4) in the same season, finished with nine points in the streak-ending loss, only the second time she failed to reach double figures this season.
Stony Brook went 7:01 without a basket, missing nine shots against Albany's swarming defense and getting only a pair of free throws by Ogunnorin as Albany built a double-digit lead.
A follow by Snow broke the Stony Brook drought, but Albany closed the half with a 10-6 spurt keyed by a steal and fast-break layup that Phillip turned into a three-point play with 4:27 to go.
A driving layup by Royals and a foul line jumper by Phillip just before the buzzer gave Albany a 36-20 halftime lead without any points from Craig, who picked up two early fouls and played only 12 minutes in the first half.
