Alvernia earned an exhilarating 70-69 win at top-seeded Stevenson to win the MAC Commonwealth title.

The Crusaders overcame a 17-point second half deficit - including a seven-point hole in the final minute - and got a game-winning jumper from Charles Cooper with just one second left to get the win.

The DeSales women lost their MAC Freedom Conference title game at undefeated FDU-Florham, falling 69-59.
