Logan Aronhalt scored 30 points and Albany (N.Y.) defeated

Niagara 75-65 in a Legends Classic game Saturday.

Aronhalt made 11 of 16 shots from the field, including 6 of 9 on

3-pointers, to spearhead the Great Danes’ 53.8-percent shooting for

the game. Mike Black came off the bench to add 19 points as Albany

(2-5) beat the Purple Eagles (2-3) for the first time in three

meetings.

Albany led by three at halftime and built its advantage to 14

points before the Purple Eagles whittled away at the lead. But

unlike Mount St. Mary’s, which squandered a 10-point halftime lead

in a Niagara victory Monday, the Great Danes held firm to the end.

Kashief Edwards had 19 points and Malcolm Lemmons 15 for

Niagara.
