Freshman Spike Albrecht made four straight from beyond the arc, too, blowing by his career high before the break with 17 points. But Hancock's three from the corner with 3:20 remaining to give the Cardinals their biggest lead, 76-66. Peyton Siva added 18 points for the Cardinals, who closed the season on a 16-game winning streak, and Chane Behanan chipped in with 15 points and 12 rebounds.

A&T (20-16) rebounded and, while Sanders rolled in pain on the baseline, began to celebrate an end to more than 30 years of disappointment. Underwood came in averaging just over six points, but was perfect from the field, hitting six field goals in as many attempts. Bruce Beckford added 16 points and Lamont Middleton 14. Davon Marshall had 22 points and Sanders 21 for Liberty (15-21).
