Inside Lacrosse Remembers Moments of 2007

Recommended Posts

[The textual passages below are all quotes. Apparently, in each category, the writers voted for their chosen candidate or team. I have reproduced below the parts that discuss Albany or Albany players. Please note that under each category, the section about Albany was not the only school or player mentioned. -UAMA2000]


Most enjoyable players to watch:

Brett Queener, Albany

From a coaching perspective, his style may have been a little erratic and out of control at times, but you always knew what to expect from Queener - high energy and tons of emotion. Throw in his contributions on the Danes’ man-up unit, and the senior was certainly one-of-a-kind.



Best coaching jobs of the year:

Scott Marr, Albany

A pre-season afterthought, lingering at the outskirts of the top-20, Marr guided a young Albany program to within one overtime goal of the Danes’ first final four. But more importantly, he put the purple and gold on the lacrosse map, setting the groundwork for continued success in the future.



Storyline of the year:


It’s unfortunate that a traditional power like Hopkins (pretty much the Yankees of college lacrosse) won the title. Because we finally did have parity play out late this season. UMBC, Delaware and Albany crashed into the NCAA Quarters, making this the first postseason that was impacted by non-traditional teams.



Surprise of the Year:


Everyone seemed to expect Albany to not factor into the playoffs, but they took Cornell down to the wire in the Quarters and blew out Loyola in the first round — after rebounding nicely to win the America East title. Great season, and a great job by coach Scott Marr and his players.



Game of the Year:

Cornell-Albany, NCAA Quarterfinals

There were other games that came right down to the wire, but this one was neck-and-neck from the first quarter on, and the only showdown that featured the nation’s two highest-scoring offenses doing what they do best. And if you’re a fan of dramatic overtime winners, John Glynn had you covered. (CJ)


Cornell-Albany, NCAA Quarterfinals

Close all game, overtime, great plays all over the field, goalies played outstanding, good crowds on both sides, excellent venue: this game had it all. There was so much action, it felt like the score was 22-21. (JJ)


Cornell-Albany, NCAA Quarterfinals

High on drama, this was almost a Cinderella story. It was an emotional game with an amazing ebb and flow. To me, Brett Queener is the most fun player to watch in all of lacrosse and his emotion was so obvious both during and after this game. Yes, it was sloppy at times, but the intensity and wrecklessness with which these two teams played was amazing. (AO)
