This is the year the UAlbany men’s lacrosse team gets past the NCAA quarterfinal round. Connor Fields, their best player, is closer to 100 percent then he’s been in weeks with his injured knee, and that puts the Great Danes back to where they were at the beginning of the season, which was the No.1 team in the country. This is head coach Scott Marr’s best team, a team that is more talented top to bottom than Denver. Won’t come easy on Saturday, but the stigma of not getting past the quarterfinals will end and UAlbany will celebrate their first ever trip to the Final Four.

Head Coach Scott Marr will join Big Board Sports Monday morning at 11:30am to recap the match up with Denver. You can catch that on the 104.5 the team app and 1045theteam.com.
