BURLINGTON, Vermont — Evan Singletary drained a fade-away 3-pointer with 1.5 seconds left to give Albany a 47-44 victory over Vermont on Wednesday night for its eighth straight win.
Albany (13-7, 8-0 American East) has won 11 of its past 12 games and has a two-game lead over Vermont (11-10, 6-2) for first place in the conference.
Vermont used a 10-3 surge, capped by Dre Wills' two-handed dunk, to tie it at 44 with 16 seconds left before Singletary hit the game-winner.
Ethan O'Day scored 10 points to lead the Catamounts, and was the only Vermont player to reach double figures. Vermont scored a season-low 44 points while shooting 30.4 percent from the floor.
