Maybe because it's more recent, or because it overwhelmed this year's Pepsi disappointment, or because it may have gotten the Capital District bandwagon rolling in our direction, and in a way that can't be dismissed a a one-time surprise or accident like the Siena game might have been (in some people's so-called minds ), but I've got to go with the NCAA

Statefan and I may diverge on this issue, but for me the NCAA was the higher accomplishment and gave the greatest satisfaction.


Although beating Siena was always very satisfactory and my memories of those occasions certainly go back much longer for me than dreams of going to the NCAA, I have to say that last Friday was very unbelievably great for me.


Except for the aspect of beating a local rival, beating Siena is only a milestone for the progress UAlbany men's basketball has made over a long period of time that goes back to Division III days. Competing so well with UConn says much more about that progress than defeating our archrival.


Either way, for me both events are "gifts that keep on giving."

No hesitation here. It was clearly going to the NCAA. As I said in a previous post, beating Siena got the attention of local fans but getting to the NCAA and scaring the poop out of the Huskies for 30 minutes go the attention of college basketball fans across the country.
