Guard Quentin Jones tipped in a missed shot with 1.7 seconds left as host UMBC beat Albany, 71-69, Wednesday night.

Jones went to the offensive glass after guard Rodney Elliott (John Carroll) missed a floater in the lane with about four seconds left.

Jones and Elliott each had 16 points for UMBC (9-16, 5-7 America East), and forward-center David Kadiri came off the bench to score 13.
