Recap: Albany vs. UMKC

Uncasville, CT (Sports Network) - A pair of free throws by Jacob Iati in the final moments were key as the Albany Great Danes defeated the UMKC Kangaroos, 62-59, in the quarterfinal round of the 2012 Hall of Fame Tip-Off Classic at Mohegan Sun Arena.

The Kangaroos (1-2) were paced by Estan Tyler who scored a team-high 17 points to go along with six assists. Kirk Korver chipped in 16 points and Nate Rogers added another 10 before he fouled out.

UMKC converted only 9-of-28 field goals in the first half, clinging to a 26-23 lead at the half. The Great Danes also had a slow start, shooting just 7-of-21 from the floor.
