  1. Dan Barnes


    It is with a heavy heart that we share with you the passing of Dan Barnes, Great Danes Class of 2007.
    Dan was an integral part of the UAlbany men's lacrosse and football teams.
    He was a fierce competitor - intelligent and passionate, bringing positive energy to everything he did.
    He was also one of the most genuine people you'd ever meet.
    On behalf of the UAlbany family, our sincerest condolences go out to his family.

  3. Connor Fields Earns Third America East Rookie of the Week Honor


    He has won 3 of the 7 awards so far, no one else has more than 1.


    For the second-straight week and third time this season, Connor Fields was selected as America East men’s lacrosse Rookie of the Week, the league announced Monday.

    In total, UAlbany has six weekly awards this year, including three Player and three Rookie of the Week honors. All three rookie honors for UAlbany have been won by Fields.

    Fields helped the UAlbany offense to a couple of lopsided victories this week including a 26-6 victory at Canisius and a 24-6 home win over Hartford for to start 2-0 in conference play.

    Fields went back to his native Buffalo and scored four goals and two assists against Canisius, following up with a career-high seven points off five goals and two assists vs. Hartford, adding seven ground balls.

    Currently, the freshman attack leads the team in goals with 20, adding nine assists and 20 ground balls.

    Fields and the Great Danes take on Harvard on Wednesday, March 25th at 7 p.m. in Cambridge.

  4. It has been an amazing few days for UAlbany! Coach Abe and Coach Brown have successfully led their teams back to the NCAA tournament. This is the fourth consecutive year for the women and the third for the men.

    The 13th seeded women’s team will play Duke at noon on Friday in Durham, N.C., at Cameron Indoor Stadium, and the game will be televised live on ESPN2. The 14th seeded men’s team will face Oklahoma at 7:27 p.m. on Friday at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, on TruTV and on ESPN Pacific Rim in Australia.

    We wanted to give you a sneak peek at the UAlbany commercial
    that will be airing nationally this weekend.

    Whether you are traveling to the games, watching at one of the Alumni Association viewing parties
    or at home, show your support for the Great Danes by wearing your purple proudly on Friday!

    It has been an incredible first six months for me as athletic director at UAlbany. I look forward to many more exciting memories with our student athletes, coaches, staff, alumni and Capital Region fans.

    Go Great Danes!

    Best regards,


    Mark Benson
    Athletic Director
