WASHINGTON (AP) -- Daniel Munoz made two free throws to snap a 57-all tie with 13 seconds left, recorded a steal and then hit two more free throws as American University held off Mount St. Mary's for a 62-57 win Thursday night in nonconference action.
The Eagles (2-1) led 56-50 with 2:06 left when the Mountaineers (1-2) launched a 7-1 run, capped by a game-tying layup from Josh Castellanos with 21 seconds remaining.
Castellanos fouled Munoz on the ensuing possession, leading to the go-ahead free-throw makes. Munoz then stole the ball off Julian Norfleet on Mount St. Mary's next possession, and, following an American timeout, made another pair of free throws after Castellanos again fouled to send him to the line.
Munoz finished with eight points on 1-of-5 shooting. Stephen Lumpkins led the Eagles with 21 points on 7-of-8 shooting, and also pulled down 11 rebounds.
Norfleet had 14 for the Mountaineers.
Virginia has added another quarterback to its roster for next season as Kurt Benkert of East Carolina announced Sunday that he will transter to UVa.
Benkert announced on April 25 that he intended to transfer. The move to Charlottesville will reunite the quarterback with former head coach Ruffin McNeill who now is the defensive line coach for Virginia.
Benkert's bio on ECU's athletcis website lists him as 6-foot-3, 225 pounds and describes him as "A talented and polished signal-caller whose arm strength perhaps already ranks among the best in the history of the Pirate program ." He was named the starter by McNeill at ECU heading into last season, but a knee injury forced Benkert to miss the entire 2015 season.
As a graduate transfer, Benkert will be immediately available for next season. He will also have two years of eligibility remaining.
Benkert will now be thrust into a quarterback competition in Charlottesville with incumbent Matt Johns and fellow transfer Connor Brewer.

California, Vanderbilt, Northwestern and Richmond were also after Steeves, accorrding to a source.
