    CATONSVILLE, Md. (AP) -- John Zito had 16 points and seven rebounds, Mike Housman scored 15 points and Maryland-Baltimore County defeated Stony Brook 72-57 on Saturday night.

    Jerrell Dinkins had 13 points and Jay Green dished out eight assists for the Retrievers (3-4, 1-0 America East), who had lost three of four.

    Mike Popoko scored 17 points, Antwan Hardy 12 and Bobby Santiago 10 for the Seawolves (0-5, 0-1), who have dropped six straight games, dating to last season.

    UMBC led by as many as 13 early in the second half before Stony Brook went on a 15-4 run that trimmed the deficit to 47-43 with 11:03 left. Reserve Stephane Bakinde contributed a two-handed slam and a three-point play, and he ended the burst with a layup through the lane.

    But the Retrievers scored the next seven points on a basket by Dinkins, Chris Pugh's 3-pointer and a pair of free throws by Zito.

    Housman scored UMBC's first seven points and had 13 points in the first half, helping the Retrievers to a 35-23 halftime lead.

    After a right-side 3-pointer by Hardy tied the game at 9 with 15:21 left in the half, UMBC responded with a 17-5 run. Zito scored six points during the surge, and Dinkins capped it with a 3 from the right corner.
