BALTIMORE — UC Iroegbu scored 20 points including four free throws in an 8-0 closing run over the final minute and Stony Brook defeated Maryland Baltimore County, 64-57, Wednesday night, foiling UMBC’s bid for a share of the America East Conference championship.

UMBC (19-10, 10-4) had won three in a row, but the loss leaves the Retrievers three games behind conference leader Vermont with two to play.

UMBC picked up 13 steals, forced Stony Brook into 18 turnovers, but only scored 17 points off the miscues. Jairus Lyles led the Retrievers with 18 points, 10 rebounds and six steals. K.J. Maura added 15 points.
