    HARTFORD, Conn. -- Dallis Joyner's tip-in at the buzzer lifted Stony Brook past Albany (N.Y.) 57-55 Sunday in the America East Conference tournament semifinals.

    Joyner, who finished with 14 points for the top-seeded Seawolves (22-8), swooped in for the putback on Dave Coley's jumper as the clock expired. Officials reviewed the play after the buzzer sounded, but the final bucket was upheld.

    With 50 seconds left in the contest, Joyner had put Stony Brook up 55-52 on a layup. But Albany's Jacob Iati scored his only points of the game on a clutch 3-pointer to knot it at 55-all with 37 seconds to play. The Seawolves took a timeout with 13 seconds left to set up an attempt at a game-winner, which would be Joyner's in the end.

    Bryan Dougher led Stony Brook with 15 points, while Gerardo Suero had 17 for fourth-seeded Albany (19-14).

    Stony Brook hosts the tournament championship on Saturday.
