Dartmouth-Trap Game?

Recommended Posts

Concerned about this tweener game tonight. Two days after facing the 7th ranked team in the country and 3 days before one of the top teams in the conference visits. Hopefully this is not a letdown opponent, especially with the distraction of the Brown-Brennan thing.


Dartmouth is pretty big on paper, 6'10 center and a 6'9 pf. Judging from their scores they are a deliberate halfcourt team, alot like Lehigh which gave us some trouble. That said, Pomeroy has Albany as 16 point favorites, ranking went up with Hartford beating Rider last night. New floor should look good on TV, hopefully there's a nice crowd to go along with it.

Dane Pound,


I think you have a right to be concerned. The brand new floor, on which the team has not played much, does not exactly confer on us a huge home court advantage.


I think Brown's point about our learning how to win will also be a heavier factor than with other teams.


I hope, though, that community curiosity about the Capital District's newest bona fide Division I team will bring out new fan support.

It was clear from Coach Brown's comments after the game that they are very much looking forward to Sunday's game with BU. I thought that may distract them from last nights business with Dartmouth but it didn't. Although Brown did seem frustrated at times that they didn't put them away earlier.


BU game should be great. Hopefully everyones hangovers have worn off by then and we get more of a crowd than last night.
