Meet and Great your Great Danes

Recommended Posts

I know this was mentioned in another string. One of the sheets that came with season tickets refers to the event tonight in the RACC Hall of Fame Room at 6:00 PM. It reads "Meet Coaches Will Brown and Trina Patterson , as well as their coaching staffs and your Great Dane Basketball teams. Enjoy food and drinks as we tip off the 2005-06 season." I'm sure the athletic dept would appreciate a good turn out tonight.


I also recently heard that Varsity Club membership had essentially doubled since last season. Personally, I enjoy the pre-games in the Hall of Fame Room for basketball and the tent for football and I would strongly encourage anyone who attends even a few games in the course of the year to join and support the Varsity Club.

I got there a little late tonight but I thought tonight's meet and greet was well done. I hoped to see more people there tonight but it was respectable. I almost suspect there was too much going on this week in Daneland-V-ball with Cuse on Tues, exhibition on Friday and a football game on Saturday may have overwhelmed some.


Thought Trina may have tried to soften expectations this year but she didn't as far as I was concerned. She seemed to think some of the younger players are up to the challenge they're going to face this year. Chatted briefly with Higy and freshman walk-on Sarah Hughes who actually sought us out and were quite friendly.


Brown did a nice job pointing out Albany's all-time leading scorer Gary Holway who was in attendance. A lot of what he talked about is familar to those who follow the program closely. He mentioned some nagging injuries to players but didn't get into specifics.


Several of us had a good conversation with Pat Fillen. Really personable guy who seems very eager for the season to start. Easy to see why he was so popular in Vermont.
