Wilson, 6-foot-6 senior forward, needed five points to reach the milestone and got there with the first of two free throws after a shooting foul. A three-year starter signed by Minnesota-Duluth, he finished with 23 points.

Albany got 26 points from Scott Lichte and 21 from Zach Raekel. The Huskies beat the Thunder for the second time and improved to 8-3 in the Granite Ridge Conference and 12-8 overall.

Travis Carr added 12 point for Zimmerman (4-6 conference, 8-10 overall). The Thunder were missing point guard Max McNulty due to a concussion.
