Great quote from coach in the TU blog...


“This is a unique team,” Albany coach Will Brown said. “No one is walking out of this gym saying, `wow, they are good.’ They are saying, ‘how the heck is that team 15-4?’ We are 15-4 because we play hard, we play unselfish, and we play together. It’s that simple.”

I am watching the game on Hartford's website---good video.


For those not watching, I offer the following. It seems that Hartford is very quick off the dribble, which allows them to create the open jump shots from 15 feet and beyond that we are told they favor. Hartford distributes the ball very well. Hartford is good at driving to the rim and forcing us to play help defense (which, in turn, creates the open-shot opportunities).


Hooley is playing very well so far (14 first-half points, a career high for points in one game, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists; he leads our team in each these three statistical categories) and doing a great job at attacking the rim, as also noted by our announcers.

Fox 980 is saying it's a three way tie for first (VT, SB, UA) but ESPN and AE.com have VT and UA as 5-1 (after this game) and then SB as 4-1. I must be missing something or hearing it wrong.



EDIT: Ahh Zack just explained it as 1 loss.

Tremendous defensive effort in the second half (outscored Hartford 29-14 in the second half) by UAlbany.


In the second half of the Maine game, it looked like we picked up a step against Maine's players, and in the second half of tonight's game against Hartford, I noticed the same. I suspect our team's conditioning and hard work is paying off in the second half of games. Moreover, with teams having to put so much effort into their pressure defense of our back court, I wonder if our opponents are losing a step in the second half of games. And, in turn, fatigue is often a factor in missing jump shots.
