Hartford was the lone team to sweep its series, taking two from Binghamton. Austin Williams’ three-pointer with 0.5 seconds left on Sunday delivered the sweep for the Hawks, who improved to 4-2 in conference play. UAlbany and Maine each won their first games of the season, earning splits with Vermont and New Hampshire, respectively, while UMass Lowell and NJIT both took a game in their series.
