Team Report: Getting Inside


Getting Inside | Notes and Quotes | Roster Report

Albany has played like the No. 1 seed so far in the America East tournament, blowing out its first two opponents while charging into the championship game with a whole lot of momentum.


The Great Danes beat UMBC, 79-65, in the first round, and New Hampshire, 67-54, in the semifinals, and neither game was as close as the scores might indicate. Albany has been working efficiently on offense and frustrating its opponents on defense, a combination that has led to the best season in school history.

But no matter how well the Danes are playing, no one is going to give them the championship. In fact, they're going to have to pry the crown right off of the head of the three-time defending league champion Vermont if they want to advance to the NCAA tournament.


Albany shot 57.5 percent from the floor against UMBC and 49.0 percent against New Hampshire, but Vermont will be the toughest test. The Catamounts have the inside players and the size and quickness on the perimeter to stay with Albany.


Albany will have one huge advantage in that the game will be played on its home floor in Vestal, N.Y., just one of the perks that come with being the top seed. The Great Danes earned the right to play the championship game at home and now they have to take advantage of it.

We know if we continue to play consistently that we can get a championship." -- F Levi Levine, referring to the fact that Albany gets to play the conference championship game on its home floor (the RACC, in Vestal, N.Y.) by virtue of being the tournament's top seed.
