UAlbany Coach Will Brown Previews the America East Finals [AUDIO]

Despite the fact that they were hosting the first weekend of the America East tournament, very few expected UAlbany to make it out of the first two rounds alive. But, after housing UMBC by 30, and then upsetting the powerhouse Vermont Catamounts 67-58, the Danes once again find themselves on the verge of an NCAA tournament bid.

Earlier today on Joe & Brix, head coach Will Brown joined the program to discuss his team’s unaccepted run, and to preview Saturday’s matchup against the second seeded Stony Brook Seawolves. The championship, with a trip to the big dance on the line, will be played at Stony Brook and can be found on ESPN2 starting at 11:30.

Check out the conversation below, and always check out Joe & Brix on 104.5 The Team, ESPN Radio.
