ALBANY, N.Y. – March Madness is in full tilt, and it was a huge weekend for the Great Danes on the basketball court.
The UAlbany men held off UNH in the America East semifinals on Sunday with a 60-58 win. The Danes will face Stony Brook in the championship on Saturday.
It will be a rematch of last year’s finals. The Seawolves are the only conference team to beat UAlbany this season.
“They don’t ask you how you won. They ask you if you won,” head coach Will Brown said. “This wasn’t a masterpiece, but we did what we needed to do – survive and advance. And now we’ve got one game in our building in front of our people for the right to go to the NCAA Tournament.”
It’s the same story for the Lady Danes. Top-seeded Maine lost, so the UAlbany women will host the America East Championship against Hartford.
