  1. Bracketology: The Repercussions of Big East Chaos


    A thought worth pondering about Albany: The NCAA’s RPI archive includes a Selection Sunday sheet for every year since 2009. Every team with a top-six RPI in that span has earned a first-round home game. The Great Danes sit at No. 6 entering Saturday’s America East finale against Binghamton, and while the top of their resume is skimpy, their strength of schedule isn’tthat much of a minus.

  4. Quint Kessenich: Faceoff specialist can put clamp on title plans

    TD Ierlan (Albany): The three-sport star from Victor, N.Y, has been impressive in his initial campaign, showing a rare versatility of style and technique. Ierlan (71 percent and seven points) showcased a variety of stances (standing and down on one knee), hand placement (underhand and motorcycle grip) and counters in a one-goal loss to Maryland.

    "If I were to list five qualities that TD possesses that separate him from most, they would be – humble, competitiveness, relentless work ethic on and off field, ability to adapt during the game and mental strength," Albany coach Scott Marr said. This freshman grasps the nuances. Albany (10-2) faces Yale (8-3) on Saturday.

  5. Paul Carcaterra's comments from Saturdays Yale/Brown game:


    (Again this week) if season ended this weekend he would give Fields the Tewarraton

    Fields was dominant against Maryland's D

    Atmosphere for UA/Maryland was incredible.

    Casey Stadium would be great venue for quarterfinal site - facilities, central location, fans

    Believes UA can make it to Final Four

  6. UAlbany Women's Lacrosse Earns 11-10 Upset at #8/8 Cornell

    BIG win for the ladies, GREAT Job!


    UAlbany (8-4) held on defense against Cornell (9-2) with a shot clock violation with 1:34 left. After Savitcheff’s free position shot went high with around 30 seconds left, a second chance for Savitcheff from Emma Powlin found the back of the net with 18 seconds remaining. Then, Kenzie Neal won the draw and found a racing Savitcheff all alone. Savitcheff buried the goal with 10 seconds to go, giving UAlbany the lead and the eventual 11-10 victory.


  7. Tuition plan demands students stay in New York New aid requires residency equal to number of years benefit received

    "A recipient shall agree to reside exclusively in New York State, and shall not be employed in any other state, for a continuous number of years equal to the duration of the award," the legislation states.

    Recipients must also sign a contract that would convert the scholarship into a student loan in the event that they decide to take a job out of state within the period of obligation. Exceptions can be made for students who continue to pursue an undergraduate education after the five-year maximum runs out, or begin pursuing a graduate degree full or part time.


    Speaking Monday morning on a conference call with members of newspaper editorial boards, Cuomo said the rationale for the residency requirement was clear: "Why should New Yorkers pay for your college education, and then you pick up and move to California?" he said. "The concept of investing in you (and) your education is that you're going to stay here and be an asset to the state. If you don't want to stay here, then go to California now — let them pay for your college education."

    1. Albany’s Connor Fields and Stony Brook’s Kylie Ohlmiller are on pace to break the NCAA Division I men’s and women’s lacrosse single-season scoring records, respectively.

Two-time Tewaaraton winner and former Great Danes attackman Lyle Thompson had 48 points at the same juncture of his record-setting 128-point campaign in 2014.

  13. Still in the lead after the winter.


    Albany Maintains Commissioner's Cup Lead After Winter Season

    BOSTON - After capturing three of the five America East winter championships, Albany has grown its lead in the 2016-17 Commissioner’s Cup standings through the completion of 11 championships. The Great Danes won both the men's and women's indoor track & field titles as well the women's basketball crown to earn 124 winter points and maintain their hold on first place. As they did in the fall, New Hampshire and Stony Brook followed in second and third place, respectively.

    The Commissioner’s Cup annually recognizes the strongest athletic program in America East as determined by a scoring system which rewards a school for success both during the regular season and championship competition in the conference’s 17 sports.
