A bit dated now (from yesterday) but I haven't seen it posted before. Some love from the bleacherreport.

Albany, Cinderella

Look out for the Albany Great Danes.

Sam Rowley (14.0 points, 7.7 rebounds per game) and Peter Hooley(13.7 points) lead the way for an explosive team out of the American East conference hot on a six-game tear.

The Great Danes are no fluke, either, clutching a 3-4 mark against theRPI Top 150 with a narrow 64-60 loss to Providence (23rd in RPI) on the resume.

Albany is already starting to make the rounds as an upset special, as captured by Art Stapleton of The Record:

 

Considering Oklahoma is a loser in two of its last four, he may be on to something.

The fact of the matter is that Albany can small-ball the heck out of bigger programs so long as it shoots a strong percentage, something perhaps not very difficult considering the Great Danes shoot 44 percent from the floor.

After Oklahoma is perhaps a date with Providence before what figures to be an eventual encounter with Virginia. That figures to be a loss, but in a brutal bracket this year for the smaller teams, it'll be quite the memorable run.

Prediction: Albany goes on a run that ends at the hands of Virginia.

I'd sure take a spot in the Sweet Sixteen.

 

In Syracuse.

 

I was thinking the same thing. If we make it 'Cuse, I will ABSOLUTELY be there.

According to the Times Union, eighteen number 14 seeds have beaten their first-round opponents since the NCAA went to the 64- or more-team format in 1985. By my way of thinking, that's almost two teams every three years.

As per UASports Twitter feed:

 

Tune in tonight to ESPN's Sportscenter between 11-12 and again tomorrow morning at 11:20 to see Peter Hooley live in-studio! ‪#‎GoGreatDanes‬ ‪#‎ncaadanes‬

 

Must not be on regular ESPN because there are back to back NBA games on tonight until 1am on ESPN. Actually, just checked the guide and sportscenter is on ESPN2 at 11pm.
