ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Joe Cremo scored 25 points and Albany rebounded from a loss to conference leading Vermont to drub Hartford 80-62 on Saturday night.
Albany is currently in a tie for third in the America East Conference standings with New Hampshire with one game left.
David Nichols finished with 21 points and Dallas Ennema added 11 for Albany (19-12, 10-6), which shot 47.6 percent and 50 percent from 3-point range.
