Cameron Healy Sets UAlbany Scoring Record With 41 Points
After a second half to forget against Stony Brook on Saturday night, Redshirt Sophomore Cameron Healy fired back with a record setting performance in a 101-73 win against UMass-Lowell. Healy set a new scoring mark in school history with 41 points, 22 of them coming after the half.
"I knew I was going to be aggressive from the get-go" Said Healy after the game. "That was my mindset going in and the shots started falling. Every media timeout I was telling myself to stay aggressive and stick to the game plan".
Healy's 41 surpasses the previous record of 40 by David Nichols in 2017 playoff game against Hartford, a game in which Healy watched from the sidelines during his redshirt year. Gary Holway also scored 40 for the Great Danes in 1957.
"First off, congratulations to Cameron on his school record" Said Will Brown. "I thought he did it in a very efficient way. He puts in the time, he puts in the work, so I'm happy for him."
"I've been getting in the gym a lot the past couple of days" Healy told Radio Play by Play announcer Brian Mariano after the game. " I wasn't really happy with the way I shot it at the end of the Stony Brook game, for me it's about preparing for games and that will lead to success and that's what happened tonight".
The work has paid off for the Redshirt Sophomore as he is etched in the UAlbany record books after his historic night.
