December basketball games moved

Recommended Posts

From the University site:



     Albany, N.Y. – University at Albany Director of Athletics and Recreation Lee McElroy announced on Monday, Nov. 8 that the school will move two home basketball games in the month of December to other locations due to some minor delays in renovations to the Recreation and Convocation Center on campus.

     UAlbany’s game with non-league opponent Long Island in men’s basketball has been shifted from the RACC to The College of Saint Rose’s Campus Activity Center. The contest will be held in the brand-new Daniel P. Nolan Gymnasium, a 1,200-seat arena, on Wednesday, December 8 at 7:00 p.m.

     The Great Danes were also scheduled to host Syracuse in women’s basketball on Tuesday, December 7. The game has been moved to Syracuse’s Manley Field House.

     "We have made these schedule changes in an effort to allow our student-athletes to compete in the proper setting, plus provide full service to the fans in attendance," McElroy said. "There are always some unexpected delays when renovating a facility, and we believe everyone will benefit from the upgrade to the centerpiece of our current athletic complex."

     The $1.5 million improvement to the RACC began on Sept. 1 with an original expected completion date of Nov. 30. The facility’s three playing surfaces, located on the arena level, have been completely changed over to Robbins biochannel flooring, plus a new synthetic surface covers the 170-meter indoor track. In addition, the RACC’s sound system, wiring, telecommunications and data connections have all been upgraded.
