    Albany stuns top-seed Vermont in America East semifinals

    Associated Press

    ALBANY, N.Y. -- Peter Hooley scored 26 points, including four 3-pointers, as No. 4 seed Albany stunned top-seeded Vermont 67-58 in the semifinals of the America East tournament Sunday.

    Hooley, who averaged 15 points entering the tournament, scored 22 in the first half -- a day after dropping 30 in the quarterfinals.

    Gary Johnson added 17 points and 13 rebounds for the host Great Danes (17-14), who never trailed. Defending champion Albany took out the top seed for the second year in a row.

    Clancy Rugg and Luke Apfeld scored 13 points apiece for the Catamounts (22-10), who lost once in the conference and swept two regular-season games with Albany by a combined 40 points. Vermont had won 11 in a row and 18 of 19.

    Albany faces No. 2 seed Stony Brook in the title game on Saturday.
