If the UAlbany men’s basketball is going to continue to move up in the America East Conference standings, they need wins over UMass-Lowell and Maine on Wednesday and Sunday. The Great Danes lost to both teams in the first half of conference play, but UAlbany is much improved since the Jan 16th loss at UMass-Lowell. Nobody will argue Vermont is the best team in the conference, but there is some question who is the best of the rest. UAlbany is gaining but can’t afford a setback against the River Hawks on Wednesday at SEFCU Arena.
