    ALBANY, N.Y. -- Ryan Cook scored 24 points and Brian Neller added 20 Saturday as Maryland-Baltimore County upset Hartford 69-62 in the America East Conference quarterfinals with a blazing second-half shooting display.

    The sixth-seeded Retrievers (8-22) shot 78.9 percent (15 of 19), the second best ever in a half at the America East tournament. Their 85.7 percent (18 of 21) in the second half of a 2006 tournament win over Stony Brook stands as the record.

    Cook made his first six shots in the second half to help UMBC take a 38-35 lead with 13:26 remaining after it trailed 32-24 early in the half.

    Wes Cole's 3-pointer with 1:28 left brought the third-seeded Hawks (17-13) to within 61-59, but a 3-pointer by Neller and baskets by Adrian Satchell and Malik Garner secured UMBC's semifinal berth Sunday against Vermont.

    Nate Sikma scored 17 points and Mark Nwakamma 13 to lead Hartford.
