ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Ahmad Clark was 13 of 15 from the free throw line to total 23 points while dishing out six assists to help Albany thwart Manhattan 77-67 on Thursday night to halt a three-game skid.
Cameron Healy added 16 points, Antonio Rizzuto had 14 and Adam Lulka posted a double-double with 10 points and 10 boards for Albany (4-9).
