ESPN.com Game Preview

From ESPN.com Preview of Bracketbuster Weekend:


Albany at Virginia Commonwealth

Friday, 7 p.m. ET (ESPNU)

If you're lucky enough to be one of the 37 (and counting!) U.S. households that receive ESPNU, you can start your Bustin' early. From out of the America East Conference (the league that brought you the freewheeling Vermont Catamounts), we have another great story. The Albany Great Danes (16-8, 11-2 AE) are in only their seventh year as a Division I member after making the jump from D-III, and they're within four of equaling the number of wins they earned in their first three AE seasons combined. Led by Wilson "twins" Jamar (17.6 ppg) and Brent (10.0 ppg), the "Scoobies" recently set a team record for D-I single-season wins (14). The 14th win came against Boston University in their winter homecoming game -- an event known around the Empire State capital as the "Big Purple Growl."


Albany will take on VCU (16-8, 10-6 CAA), whose only growling lately has come from the program's collective tummy. They're starving for wins. British import Nick George, a 6-6 senior (16.7 ppg, 5.1 rpg), and the Rams have lost three of four and have slipped off the pace in the Colonial race. If VCU's talented backcourt can generate some of the team's CAA-high 8.5 steals a game, they'll be able to deny their feisty visitors their Scooby snacks and keep some for themselves. Zoinks!
